The United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development defines sustainable development as:
"Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
Architecture, the production of buildings and places and the associated moving to, and from, and around them, is a key element of "Development"; around 75% of global energy consumption is consumed by these linked activities.
Our approach is to deliver sustainable designs and, through such designs, encourage and help our clients live and work with those designs in a way that guarantees the longterm well-being of the global ecosystem.
We take an holistic approach to design, we focus on a simple, straightforward and clear approach to form, siting and orientation, material selection and construction to minimise waste, maximise the use of daylight and sunlight and achieve an elegant and responsible and truly sustainable solution for our clients.
Our experience includes designing and delivering LEED Platinum projects in the USA and BREEAM Excellent buildings in the UK.
