Strey Architects is an award winning practice with a fresh, original and honest approach to design.
Strey Architects strive to create comfortable and sensible spaces for all, whilst protecting the environment & the earth’s limited resources.
We at Strey Architects, utilise & optimise the natural elements of the site- & local climatic conditions, through the use of passive design- and tried & tested sustainable design principals and try to protect the natural resources of the earth through the re-purposing existing buildings through recycling- & utilising existing materials & natural products where possible.
Who Are We:
To us, every project is unique, and a specific understanding of the owner’s personal requirements and the characteristics of the site, is fundamental to every bespoke design.
We keep ourselves informed of sustainable practices, modern technologies and the latest materials. This allows us to offer our clients knowledgeable and up-to-date guidance in their decision-making throughout the design and construction process.
Design is a process of combining the architectural fundamentals of flow, space, light, form and aesthetics, with practicality & good value. We believe that the buildings that result enhance their natural- and built environment, and contribute to the occupant’s experience.
