Design & the Environment
The built environment contributes significantly to global carbon emissions.
As a group we collaborate with specialist partners to prioritise and drive sustainably based design solutions,
that are both responsible and future focussed.
We adopt a ‘circular mindset’ in our approach to design with a key commitment to:
Design for decarbonisation
Design for waste reduction
Design for energy efficiency
Design for longevity
Our methodology integrates the selection of responsibly sourced materials, products, technologies and specifications that comply with internationally recognised ecological, social and economic standards. We believe in the effective redevelopment of existing buildings, as well as new build properties and consider their potential contribution from an environmental, biodiversity and cultural perspective. Collectively, our team is focussed on sustainability & protecting the environment; along with the well-being of one another, our clients, partners and the wider global community.
As a creative business our strategy is aligned with The WELL Standard, LEED & BREEAM accreditation and the studio recognises the guidance provided by the Irish Green Building Council (IGBC).
