Architype works with our clients, through a
uniquely engaging and collaborative process,
to create buildings that:
|are crafted to achieve an elegant simplicity, making them affordable and practical, robust and durable, easy to build and maintain|
radically reduce energy consumption and
running costs, minimise carbon emissions
and environmental impact, and are healthy
|are uplifting and enriching, celebrate their connection with the external landscape, use natural materials, and are light and airy, calm, refined and humane|
|are timeless and long lasting, and being free of applied style are enriched by inhabitation and personalisation, enabling adaption and change over time|
By setting passivhaus, the most rigorous energy standard in Europe, as our minimum energy target dramatic reductions in energy consumption of up to 90% can be realised.
Using less energy achieves direct carbon reductions and cost savings, which is more effective than offsetting carbon emissions with expensive micro-renewables.
By providing an industry leading 'soft landings' service, underpinned by rigorous post occupancy evaluation, we support clients in the first two years of occupation to optimise building performance.
