We have mirrored the client’s emphasis on creating a ‘truly sustainable’ development for users and community, not just an ‘eco’ badge. The proposal takes a low-maintenance, fabric-first approach, with the intention to achieve Passivhaus status. We envision a reduced-carbon construction with at least 80% on-site renewable generation. Buildings are compact and efficient with high thermal performance, good ventilation and optimised daylighting. In other words, a holistic side-wide attitude to sustainability.
