Projects are examined, based on its first principles on how to passively provide the fundamentals of comfort, safety, livability and yet sustainably respond to the local climate and ecology while remaining economically viable and globally pertinent.
The approach by operating beyond the traditional precincts whilst addressing the user brief and aspiration and building to perfection.
The critical elements of this framework include:
1. Water Conservation and Demand Management – Cutting back on water use and waste-water discharge at the individual and collective levels is at the heart of water sustainability.
2. Groundwater Management – Groundwater is acknowledged as a common property resource that must not be indiscriminately “mined”. Special consideration is given to replenishing aquifers and limiting the digging of new bore wells.
3. Wastewater Management

The construction process impacts and modifies local ecology. geographical location, land topography,
The planning of an environmentally efficient building, strong considerations are given to maximize the building’s energy efficiency and reduce the energy expended throughout the construction process.
Construction industry is one of the world’s greatest contributors of greenhouse gases, and in some countries, forms 50% of the total carbon dioxide emissions.
integrated water management
Social responsibility an imperative component of any project which we approach from two angles:
“For whom and where” and “By whom and how”.
“For whom and where” is rooted in the needs of the client and the community in which they live, making them the primary concern in our designs.
“By whom and how” gives consideration to the players in the construction process. Workers in India’s construction industry often suffer from a lack of dignity, pay, and even basic training.
