UK Architects Declare Climate and Biodiversity Emergency
Holland Harvey has signed a pledge in support to a call from 16 RIBA Stirling Prize winning practices for a commitment to positive action on climate change. “The twin crises of climate breakdown and biodiversity loss are the most serious issue of our time. Buildings and construction play a major part, accounting for nearly 40% of energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions whilst also having a significant impact on our natural habitats.
For everyone working in the construction industry, meeting the needs of our society without breaching the earth’s ecological boundaries will demand a paradigm shift in our behaviour. Together with our clients, we will need to commission and design buildings, cities and infrastructures as indivisible components of a larger, constantly regenerating and self-sustaining system.
The research and technology exist for us to begin that transformation now, but what has been lacking is collective will. Recognising this, we are committing to strengthen our working practices to create architecture and urbanism that has a more positive impact on the world around us.” www.architectsdeclare.com

Hidden House: our extension and refurbishment of a lower ground floor flat in west London is nearing completion. Situated in a conservation area, a challenging setting, our response will see a previously dark and confined space transformed into a bright and airy open plan home that will extend into a verdant landscaped garden.
