Sustainability is at the heart of everything we undertake. We audit all projects against global standards, while developing bespoke strategies that drive our environmental agenda. To build sustainable requires us to design holistically, and our unique integrated design approach enables us to develop innovative strategies that have a firm focus on the future of the environment.
We have a strong creative team, in which structural and environmental engineers, together with many other specialist design teams, work alongside the architects from the beginning of the design process. By working together from the outset, we learn from one another and combine our knowledge to devise fully integrated design solutions. Design is undertaken by a small, close-knit team; the team that starts a project sees it through to completion, thus providing continuity throughout.
Every project starts with fresh thinking leading to a solution that is tailor-made for the specific site and those who will use it. We lead by design, combining global research with local action. The outcome is an architecture that is sensitive to the climate and culture of a place.
The potential for design to be a catalyst for positive environmental change has never been greater - it is now possible to consider the built environment as a totality, and to apply a truly holistic approach to responsible design.
