Choosing an architect

Clients often approach us with only an outline idea of their project – for example they need more space or feel there is a disconnect between their house and garden – and can’t see how best to find a solution. They feel a need for architectural insight and advice to bring a project to life; This is where we begin to add significant value. We help our clients to explore and refine their needs before responding with concept designs, often introducing ideas beyond what they had imagined possible. Not only does this help both parties ensure they are on the right path to a viable solution, but also that the solution has an expert’s insight to make an elegant proposal that gets the absolute maximum benefit for the money spent.

The BIG C

The case for making the assessment of embodied carbon in buildings a mandatory requirement. The really big “C” this year is not Covid or Cancer, or even Christmas…but of course it is Carbon. Strange that it is one of the most common elements on the planet and makes up about 12% of the human body and the fourth most common element in the universe. The amount of carbon on the planet has not changed since the planet was formed 4.5 Years billion years ago, but the problem is that we keep taking it out of the earth and putting it into the atmosphere in the form of CO2, causing a warming of the climate.
