Passive Architecture strategies
Passive architectural design, an approach to building design that uses buildding architecture to minimize energy consumption. These strategies are features innate to the form and design of a building that channelize available natural resources to ensure thermal comfort.
Our passive strategies Specialisation
optimising spatial planning and orientation to control solar gains and maximise daylighting, manipulating the building form and fabric to facilitate natural ventilation strategies and making effective use of thermal mass to help reduce peak internal temperatures
Planted roof or green roof can be defined as roof that consists of vegetation and growing medium. We help clients in choosing the species, strategies and implementation of roof garden.
Light shelf is a passive architectural device used to reflect natural daylight into a building. 'Bouncing' sunlight off a horizontal surface distributes it more evenly and deeply within a space, whereas direct sunlight can cause glare near an opening, whilst leaving dark areas further in. We help in design and implementing light shelf.
