We are interested in in understanding the subtle qualities of light. To do this we employ state-of-the-art technology to measure, simulate and display the interactions between architecture and light.
The way air moves in and out of our buildings dictates the comfort of our environment and the quality of the air we breathe. We use advanced computational fluid dynamics to design naturally ventilated buildings that can maximise comfort and minimise energy consumption.
Thermal comfort is key to a sustainable design approach. Drawing on the latest technologies we can now simulate the physiological responses of the human body to different thermal stimuli.
Auralization and visualization are now used as fundamental design tools to allow design ideas to be both visually and aurally investigated before a building is constructed. By listening to a simulation of a space we can demonstrate the effects of changes to a design.
By evaluating our design intentions when the building is in use, we can inform future design decisions. This not only serves our own sense of professional accountability, but also communicates to clients our commitment to design quality.
