DESIGN APPROACH

As Chartered Architects we concentrate on producing new homes individual to the needs of our Clients, befitting the Scottish rural environment. All our work aims to be carbon neutral, incorporating local natural materials with low embodied energy, breathing wall building constructions and environmentally focussed specifications. Most of our projects incorporate the use of renewable energy systems. We have direct experience of solar thermal, solar photovoltaic, ground sourced heat-pump and wood pellet fuel systems.

We have been working with Graphisoft design, modelling, and computer aided drawing software for the last 16 years. This CAD software enables us as Architects to capitalise on our built environment experience and combine digital survey technology to produce 3-dimensional building models. These models enable us to develop our designs and explore our new creations directly with our Clients. 

 

"We believe that by supporting Clients through their early-stage decision making process we can add real value to their projects. Whether this is the decision to buy a site, extend an existing building or build a new home - getting the right advice at the outset of a project can help each Client to achieve a more sustainable design, save money and reduce cost.”

Greig Munro - Chartered Architect, Coast 2 Coast Architects

 

On behalf our Clients, we are usually appointed as the lead consultant to an interdisciplinary Design Team including Structural Engineers, Energy Advisors and Cost Managers. In this way we are able to take total responsibility for all pre-construction design and planning work ready for the selection & appointment of a Building Contractor. We then take great time and care to work closely with your chosen Contractor to ensure the project is undertaken on time and to desired quality & budget. In this way we are able to ensure the quality and sustainability of your project from the initial Client meeting through to completion and handover.
