Sustainability -

Beautiful low energy tailor made work

Our work is designed to our clients needs with a strong focus on light, energy efficiency, craft and comfort.

Our quality of life, health, attitude, etc are all hugely influenced by our physical environment. We believe that sustainability, our capacity to endure, is all about the search to improve our physical environment.

This search is the basis of our practice. We seek this improvement with every project at every stage from sketch to handover. For example, at the initial design stage, we seek a logical functional layout that makes the best use of the site, orientation, wind, passive solar design, etc. Or, at detail design, we seek the best materials, details, technologies on the basis of cost, health, u-value, footprint, certified sources, etc. Or, during construction, we seek quality, precision, air-tightness, etc.

In short, sustainability is key to realising bright positive comfortable spaces and place to live and work. It sounds simple when written down and it’s the basis of our practice.

What Our Clients Say...

We wanted to build a family home which would blend with the environment and be beautiful in its simplicity. In particular we wanted to be able to avail of the views from all parts of the house.

Max and the team at Aughey O’Flaherty responded to these considerations by designing a modern home which has an overwhelming feeling of serenity. There is no redundancy in the design and yet there exists a spaciousness echoed in the views to exterior. This is achieved with generously proportioned volumes, vaulted spaces, natural wood panelling and flooring. Light floods throughout.
