SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

Our mission is to deliver outstanding, sustainable architecture that you can be proud.

 

Buildings have an impact on our environment. They use a substantial percentage of the world’s energy and drinkable water, and emit a considerable share of the world’s carbon footprint. For this we strongly believe sustainable, environmentally conscious architecture and design plays an important role in building a better future.

VALUES

As sustainable architects in Melbourne, we aim to minimise the impact buildings have on our environment by creating spaces that are more energy, water and waste efficient.

To do this, we focus on:

  • Energy efficient thermal performance

  • Passive Solar Design

  • Adaptive reuse and recycling

  • Responsible selection of materials

  • Water conservation and waste management strategies

  • Green home technologies

  • Adoption and education of Passive House principles and practices

These criteria are central to delivering an eco-friendly, energy efficient building that is sympathetic to our environment both during and after the build.

By keeping up to date with the latest trends, technologies and developments, we can ensure every design is created with high performance, comfort and low energy costs in mind.

PASSIVE HOUSE

Or, Passivhaus, is a German approach to building.

It focuses on maximising building performance, quality construction and climatic considerations to minimise a building’s ecological footprint.

Passive House design relies on high performance windows, quality insulation and other technical considerations such as air tightness, mechanical ventilation heat recovery and limiting thermal bridging to provide optimal performance and comfort.

 

Passive house and passive solar design offer a range of benefits that start anywhere from reduced energy costs, to improved indoor air quality or the elimination of mould and interstitial condensation to name a few.

Whether your goal is an energy efficient office, temperate, eco-friendly home or certified Passivhaus, our expertise will help you achieve it.
