Sustainable Design

Simple… Sustainable…Beautiful…..

Buildings are energy and they use energy in their daily use. Sustainable Design looks at optimising energy use and harnessing the energy that arrives daily. Buildings have a certain amount of energy used in the process of building them and then they require energy for coolth and warmth, light and dark and supplying water and removing waste. The energy that goes into building the building creating it’s materials feeding the artisans and getting it all to the building site we call the embodied energy This is tricky to measure exactly as you can imagine ┬áso we use generalised measures and common sense . We know that materials found on site have a low embodied energy so we use natural materials sourced on site where possible
