Business Description
Locus Architecture aims to provide professional architecture and interior design services notable for thoughtful, imaginative design, technical command, and dependable project control, in an environmentally responsible practice.
Buildings for better or worse, affect the physical and psychological well being of all of us who live and work in them. Hence we try to be mindful of those qualities which provide comfort. These include thermal, acoustic, and visual comforts, naturally, but also the pleasure and mental ease which one derives from special places.

We value the natural environment and believe that the built one can and should be harmoniously integrated into it. Buildings regulate our relationship to the outside world; the world not just of sunlight, rain, trees and breezes, but also of communities of other living creatures.

And so, to the traditional design criteria of cost, function and appearance, we add the environmental criteria of sustainable resource use, energy efficiency, and indoor air quality. Whenever possible, we select building materials which need less energy to produce, pollute less, are less toxic, and deplete limited natural resources less than conventional ones.

Many forces shape our designs: our client’s practical needs, their aesthetic ideals, their budgets, the physical setting and climate of their projects. Because of this, we have no set stylistic program. Every place is unique and our prospect is that when we have reconciled these distinct and sometimes conflicting influences; we have also beautified the built and natural worlds.

We think that, while architecture mirrors the culture that makes it, it can also, like a prism, help to refract and shape it. Today, it is sensible to build a world which is restorative, promoting a sound environment and healthful living.

Feel free to reach out to us, we would love to hear from you!
