buzz architecture is a design service-based architectural practice with a strong focus on place and space making that is sustainable, achievable, appropriate and that grows from a relationship between designer and client.
Along with satisfying the functional and aesthetic requirements, our aim is that the outcomes are as sustainable as possible. Our design process always considers the environmental cost of energy in both the material selection and building process, and the environmental cost of operating the building. We attempt to carefully balance these environmental costs with the economic reality of the process.
Our design process is clearly driven by a well formed and considered brief; developing this brief is step number one with the client. Transparency of process is a priority throughout the client and architect relationship, hence minimising the element of surprise and possible disappointment through miscommunication or misdirection.
