Design

At SustainaBuilding, we take pride in our custom design process that is centered on sustainability, energy efficiency, and high building performance. As designers, we are specialists at innovating solutions for complex problems that arise during the design phase of a project.

Our philosophy is guided by the principles of the Living Building Challenge, which emphasizes creating buildings that are regenerative, self-sufficient, and mimic the natural environment. We believe that every building should contribute positively to its surroundings and have a lasting impact on the environment.

To achieve this, we work closely with our clients to understand their unique needs and values. Our designs are based on a holistic approach that considers not just the building itself, but also the site, community, and natural systems that it interacts with. We use state-of-the-art technology, such as thermal bridge modelling and WUFI, to ensure that our designs are energy-efficient and minimize the building's carbon footprint.

One of our unique advantages is that we have in-house builders who are involved in the design process. This allows us to consider construction details and materials from the beginning, resulting in more accurate cost estimates and fewer surprises during the build.

Our custom designs not only prioritize sustainability and energy efficiency but also emphasize beauty, comfort, and functionality. We believe that a building should be more than just a structure but should be a place that enhances the well-being of its occupants and inspires them to live sustainably.

At SustainaBuilding, we are committed to creating buildings that are not just good for the environment but also good for people. Our custom designs embody the highest standards of sustainability and performance, creating a legacy that will endure for generations.
