Our Retrofit buildings prove that old can be beautiful, efficient, comfortable and healthy.
We now know that our existing buildings are highly polluting and are destroying the precious atmosphere of this beautiful planet. With pioneering clients and government research funding, and as part of a global movement for change, we were amongst the first architects in the UK to show what can be done to improve our existing buildings so that they perform almost ten times better than before. We now rank amongst a small group of architects with expertise to do what most people recently believed to be impossible. People and governments must recognise the global emergency that is staring them in the face, and have the wit and responsibility to respond. Short term financial viability is irrelevant. It’s medium to long term thinking that future generations will thank us for.
