What we do
Reverence architecture is changing the way we see and feel architecture. The re-connection and reconciliation with nature brings profound life-changing experience. Our service is all-encompassing, from the conception of design to emergence of the project. To realise transformational architecture requires deep collaboration, where the client is central to decision-making. Our process incorporates circular economy principles in all parts of the service offering from the original design concept to material selection, carbon emissions, waste management, positive energy and positive water use. Our decisions are based not only on the true cost of construction but also on the long-term operational costs. To guide us we work with the Living Building Challenge Framework.
How we can help you to go circular
Reverence architecture shifts the process of creating from actively destroying our environment to actively regenerating it. The circular economy is one aspect that helps towards this shift. Working with the Living Building Framework, we make decisions on the design to minimise carbon emissions, both in construction and in its operating life. This involves designing for net positive energy, net positive water use, non-toxic alternative construction materials and minimal wastage. The design, the materials used, the way it is constructed challenges status quo and minimises harm.
As an example, the Windsor Substation diverted 99% waste from landfill and its Life Cycle Assessment is 363% better in its carbon emissions than the previous substation. It returns its power to the grid and collects all its own water. To realise this level of transformation requires collective decision-making and in particular total immersion from the client with the process. We have worked on substations, public toilets, luxury accommodation and boutique houses. This transformational way of working is necessary to respond to the crisis we face.
