design philosophy

All buildings juggle:

  • Budget requirements
  • A practical brief of room requirements
  • Town planning controls
  • Site requirements
  • The passive and active energy management objectives
  • The services requirements
  • A sustainability brief
  • Material selection
  • The aesthetic requirement
  • Economic (or end value) concerns

RICH architecture believes each project is unique, as each client and site forms a different weighting of the above elements. This results in a unique relationship and a special bespoke building is the outcome.

RICH architecture's personal priorities lie in a modern, sculptural, sustainable dwelling that matches its economic setting. However, RICH architecture is not dogmatic; each project's priorities result from the client brief and project selection process.
