Philosophy

Our team is passionate about the natural and built environment and aims to produce appropriate site sensitive solutions. The surrounding landscape is integrated as part of the architecture so that the external and internal environment is unified.

Sustainable Architecture is really about expanding into that multi-dimensional place and space that inherently connects us all to each other and our planet.

Reducing our impact on the Earth as Architects at times is challenging, due to the inherent nature of what we do. The aim to decrease this impact has ensured that these challenges, lead to more opportunities in design outcomes. This ‘pushes the boundaries’ for healthier solutions by delving further into the ratios and sacred geometric design layouts; materiality and approach to solutions. This environment leads to reflecting what’s inside us, our inner realms of peace, joy and harmony. This is the soul of the building and ourselves. We are the soul engineers who ensure this level of sustainability is part of our creative process.

The life cycle of a building is taken into account and comprehensive liaison with our preferred consultants, ensures that all aspects of sustainability are integrated, from non-toxic materials to recycled products wherever practicable.

Some of the Consultants we work with include; Planner Consultants, Engineers (Structural, Civil, Hydraulic and Integrated Building Services Engineers), Surveyors, Heritage, Geotechnical, Wave Impact, Wildlife Corridor Expert, Bushfire, Traffic Engineer, Scenic Foreshore Expert, View Analysis Expert and other specialists as required. We enjoy the challenge that every project is different and consultant requirements can range from minimal to multifaceted.

The following aspects and additional consultants (including our own experiential and applied knowledge), are integrated, where applicable and where required to carry out our philosophy:

  • Alternative Energy – integrating solutions into the home and workplace to reduce energy consumption. This service is also liaised and consulted with the Building Service Engineers also for creative and known solutions.
  • Community Living – recognizing the community aspect of a home and building as well as the connection to the broader society.
  • Eco Specifications – non-toxic materials that hold low embodied energy, low life-cycle cost, biodegradable/recyclable/reusable materials, ethically sourced (e.g. no rainforest or old growth/poorly managed forestry practices) – all relating to respecting the Earth’s energy.
  • Interior Finishes and Fixtures – close to nature with a high vibration/energy that uplift spirit and soul.
  • Colour Consultants – work with the vibration of colour and how colour complements the individual, providing joy, health and nurturing.
  • Healthy Energy – removing toxins from the building, limiting electromagnetic smog, geopathic stress and working with the Earth’s energies for each individual site. We work with a Building Biologist for assessing, advice and input.
  • Positive and Intuitive – Sacred geometric responses, Geometria and vision.
  • Space Clearing – Energy healing and crystal energy to support the Earth and its occupants. We work with a consultant to assist when applicable.

In our logo, the ‘A’ is featured as  A archisoul logo 2 , which is the Sacred geometry symbol for ‘air’.
The ‘air’ for Archisoul is bringing the breath of the soul into the building.
