Designing Sustainable Homes For A Greener Future

As we all shift our focus towards a greener future, sustainability plays a more crucial role in architectural design and demand for eco-focused homes is growing. Our eco designs incorporate the most innovative solutions, ensuring lower energy use and reduced CO2 emissions.

We specialise in designing new eco homes and also assist with refurbishment projects that involve complex retrofits. It is possible to improve the energy efficiency of any property during a refurb, resulting in tangible benefits such as a reduction in energy bills.

Andrew Long, Company Director said: “A new eco home must always complement its environment, without compromising on aesthetics. We often gain inspiration from the natural world, incorporating features such as grass roofs. We also consider green spaces for growing and composting.

“I recently designed an eco home for a client in Cobham, Surrey, and construction work is now well underway. It is fantastic to see that the build blends seamlessly into its environment as planned.”

“Throughout the design process, we work closely with our clients to establish their wishes when it comes to energy conservation, new technologies and sustainable materials. We can even look to incorporate locally sourced materials.

“We also discuss a variety of options for greener living such as insulation, solar panels, low waste solutions, water recycling, lighting and more. It is these features that, when combined, create a healthy and sustainable home.”

Our construction partners recognise the vital role that sustainable homes play in helping to tackling climate change. They bring our designs to life, creating homes for today and a better future.
