Alexander Symes Architect was founded in 2014 with a mission to advance sustainable architecture. The world’s climate is changing and the practice believes that architecture must lead the way in changing how resources are utilized to contribute to a sustainable future. This vision for sustainable architecture is layered through all aspects of the practice and through all the stages of a project.
Alex’s technical expertise in building physics and facade system design is built on the experience he gained working in Arup’s building physics and facade engineer teams from 2010 to 2014. He has hands-on experience with construction and design for manufacture assembly (DFMA) and a passion for how buildings are put together. Alex has specialist training in the design and delivery of passive houses, which he believes offers a pathway towards exceptionally comfortable and healthy homes. Alex loves to collaborate with like-minded individuals and to test the boundaries of how status quo can be challenged to advance sustainable architecture.
