At Architype we believe that good design is worth the effort. We know that building is an expensive business and to us it just makes sense to put the effort in at the design stage to carefully think through the design and develop solutions which, once constructed, will provide a lifetime of delight for the building users.
At Architype our focus is on creating buildings which provide warm, healthy and affordable environments for building users. That¿s why at Architype, in addition to considering important traditional architectural issues like: context, views, town planning, entry, public and private space, circulation and orientation, we add additional design considerations to the mix. These include: favouring compact building forms, appropriate distribution and shading of windows, continuity in insulation, draught proof construction, thermal bridge free detailing and ventilation strategies.
We believe that an understanding of building science and a passion for good design should go hand in hand.
