Penoyre & Prasad has worked with clients in the UK and abroad for more than 23 years, using design to help them achieve long-term organisational goals, and adding significant value to their operations.

Our distinctive, collaborative design approach results in functional, beautiful and energy efficient buildings. From climatic conditions to site context, budget and individual requirements, we ensure that each project we design is right for its location, investors and users.

We are highly regarded for creating low energy, low environmental impact buildings. We are actively involved in the current debate on how to achieve zero carbon at both policy level and through our designs.

As President of the RIBA, 2007-2009, senior partner Sunand Prasad promoted climate change issues through the International Dialogues: Architecture and Climate Change talks programme. As Vice President for Policy and Strategy he was a member of the steering group that developed the RIBA’s Climate Change Toolkit. He is a member of the London Mayor’s Design Advisory Panel and the Government’s Low Carbon Construction Steering Group.

As a practice we combine the development of policy and the sharing of international best practice with appropriate sustainability solutions, whether for standalone buildings or master plan designs; for the refurbishment of existing facilities or new build. Adaptability is key to achieving real long-term sustainability. We create long-term loose-fit buildings that meet current needs whilst allowing for future as yet unknown patterns of use. Our design approach can best be summarised by the following core objectives:

to reduce energy demands through rigorously testing early design moves re building positioning, massing and orientation, to ensure we are maximising the potential of the site and day-lighting and thereafter focus with the design team on designing efficient and well controlled fabric and services

to increase energy efficiency of installations through more efficient heating, ventilation, lighting and electronic equipment and control systems.
