Our Carbon Offsetting Strategy
Like many businesses at the moment, we are going through a process of review and investigation to understand what impact our own business has on our environment. As a professional services business our Carbon Footprint is limited to the running of our premises and our modes of business transport, however we can still better manage our energy consumption and operational factors, and set a goal to reduce our carbon and waste footprints.
Using a Community Garden Development to Strengthen a Neighbourhood
After years of neglect our communal tenement garden was overgrown with brambles, ivy, and weeds. It was damp and dark with an unloved feeling, and becoming unpleasant to be in.

Creating Together – The Threesixty Architecture Cookbook
So why is an architectural practice producing a cookbook?
