Low Energy & Sustainable Design

Sustainable design (also called environmental design, environmentally sustainable design, environmentally conscious design, etc.) is the philosophy of designing physical objects, the built environment, and services to comply with the principles of economic, social, and ecological sustainability.

"Sustainable design" comprises but one of the aspects ultimately determining tectonic & architectural form; wpa believe, (used responsibly and and balanced with a full cognisance of other technical and cultural factors) it possesses the capacity to become a key determinant in the societal prescription of urban form (space) more generally going forwards.

As such wpa embrace the sustainable concept and, having recently deployed key principles to achieve BREEAM excellence ratings in buildings for TfL, are moving forward to develop residential schemes predicated on the Passivehaus approach.
