Why 'A little Architecture Studio'...

Because that's what we are and in a world where identities change easily to align with popular trends, we want to remain authentic. We believe wholeheartedly in climate change mitigation and adaptation, but we don’t want to align ourselves with media campaigns or evolving standards. We want to give all clients the chance to consider timeless site-specific sustainable design strategies, within their means. We thought by adding the ‘sustainable architecture’ tag to our name, we might scare off clients that think sustainability is expensive when we know that bioclimatic passive design can in fact improve comfort and energy efficiency and save money by reducing fuel bills without the need for expensive add-ons like solar panels. No job is too big or too small. We like to think that together we can effect positive change, no matter how small. 


Why sustainable homes...

An essential and immediate response is: Because home should be a place for respite and comfort. When we leave home, most of us want to leave feeling better than we did when we got back in. Comfort and wellbeing are inextricably linked to the natural environment which makes sustainability vital to our health as well as the health of the planet. There are lots of ways to explore this question further and we'll try and do this over forthcoming blog posts. We hope you'll stick around and get involved in the conversation! Looking forward to learning and growing together. 


Also because there is a misconception that sustainable homes are ugly. We want to try and dispel that myth!
