At ANGLESDIFFERING, we are passionate and committed by the opportunity and responsibility to create sustainable, responsible and site sensitive building in the natural environment, the built environment and the community.
Our goal is to reduce the environmental impact of our buildings in innovative and imaginative ways. The result is that we are able to conserve precious natural resources and enhance users’ quality of life while remaining within our clients’ allocated budgets. It requires constant vigilance and creative problem solving in order to succeed.
We design adopting the passive solar design principles, and sustainability principles to reduce the building’s ecological footprint: energy use, water harvesting and use, indoor air quality, materials use according to their maintenance requirements, buildings life cycle. This practice contributes to create harmony & balance with site, community, environment and has a positive impact on the welfare of the individual, the family and therefore the community.
Sustainable development is a fundamental tenet of our work and processes, seamlessly incorporated in all that we do.
