At Envirotecture we use sustainable architectural principles because we know that you want your building to:
Our core expertise is the successful integration of:
We achieve sustainable building design by breaking the design process into logical and manageable project stages. Take a look at our projects here
All of our sustainable building projects are optimised for passive design performance, using the power of sun, wind and rain to minimise the environmental impact of the buildings and spaces we design.
When we design your build we consider the following factors:
This is how spaces within your floorpan can be separated from each other, for isolated heating or cooling, and acoustics.
You want to allow breezes to move through your floorplan, and allow your building to night purge (if your climate zone allows).

We choose building materials that will retain heat or keep you cool.
Good insulation prevents uncontrolled heat flowing through your building, keeping your inside temperature constant year round.
We use fixed or moveable devices to control solar access into your building.
If you are building in a cooler climate zone this allows the winter sun to penetrate and retains warmth within your house.
With over 35 years’ experience in sustainable building design we know that our approach works, regardless of the scale of your build.
Sustainable architecture develops buildings that are simply beautiful, comfortable to live in and in harmony with their natural and built environments.
