I am a draftsman and designer with experience in landscape and architecture over some 30 years. A sample of drawings can be viewed in the gallery below.
In terms of design, the first prerequisite is to find harmony between a client’s needs and desires and the genius loci. Intelligent design then maximising the symbiosis of energy efficiency, ecological integrity, and functional beauty within and around the building (environment and local habitat.) This principle applies equally to public, commercial and residential structures and any given design aesthetic.
Idealistically, Eco-logic buildings seek to:
be beautiful and inspirational
improve health and diversity of local ecosystem
promote health and well-being of all inhabitants
comprise integrated systems that maximise efficiency and comfort
adapt specifically to site and climate and evolve as conditions change
operate pollution free and generate no waste that can not be used for another process in the building or immediate environment
harvest all their own water and energy needs on site
