We take a holistic approach to sustainability at every scale. We are not interested in sustainability as a form of expression but as a measure of quality and building performance. We’re drawn to environmental strategies that resonate with our architectural approach – calm, considered, carefully made.

Our approach is centred around quality and longevity to consider whole-life costs. We have completed a number of Passivhaus projects and value certified performances over theoretical predictions. We actively engage in research, teaching and policy production to attain high environmental standards and employ innovative sustainable construction methods and materials. 

Our design invests in robustly detailed buildings that weather well and demonstrates flexibility in layout to accommodate for evolving times. Most importantly, we believe a building must be thought and remembered of positively by those who experience it to stand the test of time.
