At Portal Studio, we are committed to sustainable design, a holistic approach that harmonizes environmental, social, and economic factors to create buildings and spaces with minimal ecological impact.
Our paramount focus on sustainable design in architecture enables us to address climate change, reduce energy consumption, optimize operational costs, enhance occupant comfort, and contribute to the creation of resilient communities while safeguarding the environment for future generations.
As a Homestar V5 practitioner and a Green Star accredited professional of the NZ Green Building Council, we actively champion sustainable design and sustainable building practices. Our expertise lies in achieving both design and as-built Homestar and Green Star ratings for all our projects, ensuring that each development is environmentally responsible and resource-efficient.
In our sustainable home design approach, we prioritize elements such as thermal comfort, waste management, energy-saving strategies, moisture control, and other planet-saving concepts that are equally relevant to individual home designs. By embracing sustainable design principles, we not only contribute to a better future for the planet but also offer our clients cost-effective solutions that yield long-term benefits.
