New Architecture:

Green design, permaculture principles, loving living spaces.

We offer the standard architectural service at recommended architectural rates; various aspects of green design are included in this service. For example, we use ‘passive solar design’ allowing winter sunshine to enter buildings to be soaked up by floors and walls which will radiate out this warmth through the night. In summer roof overhangs and shutters shade the building from sun and natural ventilation design uses prevailing winds for cooling. Providing naturally comfortable thermal environments reduces the need for mechanical heating and cooling (energy and cost saving), and makes for healthier and happier living spaces.
