Working sustainably to secure our future

The fundamentals of sustainability shouldn’t require additional expense.

With a climate crisis looming on the horizon, we all must try to do our bit to help.

Looking after our environment means trying to incorporate it into everything that we do - whether it is how we shop, travel, cook, or do our jobs. As an architecture and design firm, there is a big responsibility to create buildings - both domestic and commercial - which are environmentally friendly and therefore beneficial to the planet.

Alternative Energy

Alternative energy such as solar, wind, or water harnesses the power produced by nature and turns it into electricity for us to use.

Solar panels are an excellent way to ensure that your property remains sustainable. They are easy to install on any roof and extremely cost-effective over time.

Building Materials

Another important consideration is the materials that you use to build with. More and more people are looking for sustainable materials that don’t damage the environment.

And there are plenty of alternatives out there! Materials such as straw bales, hemp or recycled products are as strong as their unethically friendly alternatives.

We can work with you to make sure that every aspect of your construction is durable and sustainable.


A good way to reduce energy usage is to increase the amount of natural light in a building. Well-placed skylights and big windows are an ideal way to do this. To light, unavoidably darker areas, LED lights are a good option when it comes to saving energy without compromising the quality of light.

Carbon Footprint

Minimizing the carbon footprint of a build is an important aspect of our work. We work to incorporate local building materials into our designs, which not only reduces carbon footprint but also helps the building to blend nicely into its surrounding area.


To reduce the amount of water that we waste we recommend designing toilets and bathrooms with low water usage - with as few chemicals as possible - or implementing a rainwater harvesting system. Dual plumbing systems allow you to separate water that needs to be clean enough to drink, from water that can easily be used to flush a toilet or for irrigation.


What to do with waste is also an important consideration. As much as you try to reduce the amount of waste that is produced, there will almost certainly be some. We try to incorporate useful and easy ways to ensure that as much waste is recycled as possible. For example, when it comes to food waste we can install a food waste tube or easy ways to separate recyclable materials. Considering the impact on the environment when designing a building is vital. By creating eco-friendly buildings, we not only create spaces that people love to be in but also help the world to be inhabitable for years to come.

Living Walls

The concept behind a living wall is that the plants that are present help with insulation, reflect the sun, absorb carbon dioxide, produce oxygen, be watered using wastewater (like dishwater), and also attract wildlife and insects which are vital to keeping important ecosystems alive. These areas could also be used inside a building too, creating an area that is healthy, vibrant, and beautiful to be in.
