Architecture from Nature
Holistic Biophilic Architecture
Holism is about considering the whole of something including its entire web of complex interactions.
Biophilia is about using nature to benefit buildings and the people in them, and also using buildings to benefit nature.
We believe you can take these principles along with the best traits of traditional architecture, and reimagine them in futuristic and innovative ways.
We believe you can combine the likes of arts & crafts, neo-gothic, art deco, art nouveau and futurism, and add in biointegration, bioreceptivity and biomimicry to create a truly new form & style of architecture.
We try to do as much self-generated work as possible as it gives us the freedom to take risks.
We also take plenty of commissions, with as little or as much design flare as the client desires.
'Normal' Contemporary Architecture
We also do very normal contemporary buildings or very radical buildings, depending on your preferences.
We understand not every building needs to stand out, some need to blend in, so where this is desired or mandated, we are very happy to help you achieve it.
We have extensive experience of dealing with old and listed buildings, and our innovative approach that uses the latest technological advancements in surveying and design methodology will ensure that despite the complexity of such projects, your costs are kept as low as possible.
Logo & Philosophy
Our logo often gets remarked upon. It is derived from the Julia set, which is a visual representation of a mathematical function known as a fractal, with a peacock feather in the background representing the beauty of nature.
Fractals are a core part of our philosophy, as we believe they are the basis of how everything (including good architecture) is structured. For more on this, listen to this podcast episode.
Holism (not the woolly hippy type) is just about taking an all-encompassing perspective that we apply when designing buildings.
There are always practical constraints of course, but with a broader view of what buildings are, how they function, how people interact with them, and the roles they can play in the world, we can produce better, more sustainable architecture that will be much loved and last long into the future.
BIM (Building Information Modelling)
We have extensive experience of using BIM on both small residential and historic projects, as well as on large public buildings. We use BIM on all our projects to improve efficiency, perform better project coordination, and reduce costs.
We also use computational design tools to provide accurate manufacturing information and create beautiful, intricate, highly ornamented buildings quickly and efficiently.
