Studio Faithfull is an architectural practice concerned with producing inspirational buildings and places with a sustainable approach. Central to the practice is the combination of the Artificial ( man-made) and the Natural (found and used, and organic) in terms of forms, materials and flow of space. The studio will continue to explore the most appropriate modes of working and systems of construction to provide a relevant and flexible service to clients in this complex and developing world.
Currently Studio Faithfull is working with Habitech Systems on providing a design service using its locally developed SIPS fabric system, producing residential projects performing well above the conventional Australian standard. Our aim is to help extend these standards to the mass market and thus contribute to the country’s reduction in long term greenhouse gas emissions.
