Sustainable Design

Venus-Bay-02-Derek-Swalwell.jpg

We believe that sustainable design is not just about the natural environment; We also seek to sustain and improve our urban and social environment.

We design spaces for people, nurturing communities, encouraging interaction, improving street amenity and activity. A thoughtful single building can make a huge positive impact on a city and its people. 

We reduce each of our buildings’ impact on the planet’s limited resources by:

Reducing the quantity of building materials

Using recycled / salvaged materials

Sourcing new materials from responsible suppliers

Design for longevity and durability

Reduce on-going maintenance / repairs

Design for low energy consumption

Use the sun’s warmth and natural ventilation

Carbon offsetting

We can learn from other cities globally, while still celebrating our local culture and people. We want to represent Australia’s architectural future with ecologically responsible, elegant and confident buildings, designed for adaptation and longevity.
