.green design and the quest for sustainability.
Architects and their design teams are challenged to lead the next generation of sustainably designed buildings and communities. By recognizing the importance of budgets and payback periods we explore the different clients’ motivations and setbacks, integrating passive strategies with the growing market demand for green buildings. Most importantly, we believe in continuously staying educated on the issue of sustainability.

Green Policy

.building green.from theory to practice.
We are a team that is committed to making our mark for a prominent commitment to the environment. Lessons learnt from years of designing with local climatic and cultural considerations, minor details could make a big difference in the whole holistic process from commencement to completion.


Building green is not just a theory about conserving energy, we look at it as an ongoing engagement to protect the sanctity of a place, its people and its spirit. We emphasise on creating a sustainable lifestyle, aided by resources and technology that is vastly available. To us, sustainability is all about balancing needs.

We work on assisting clients from the design stage to achieve maximum compatilibity in terms of sustainbility and efficiency with computer aided simulations and analysis.
