Functional design

Konar Architects Geelong adopt a creative and mindful approach to each project. The effectiveness of a design relies on it being fit for its intended purpose. To achieve this we work closely with our clients to develop a project brief that is suitably comprehensive and develops the full potential of each project.

Environmental responsibility

A core logic of Konar Architects is that architecture of the future is of the moment with a foot in the past. Today’s design should limit the burden on future generations. Konar Architects strives to embody each project with components specified from environmentally sustainable sources with a focus on re-claimed and re-cycled materials. ‘Passive Haus’ techniques can be incorporated to lower long term energy use and environmental pollutants. The client’s brief and statutory requirements will guide the measures embodied in each project to achieve an environmentally responsible outcome.

To impart projects with a greater sustainability performance, Konar Architects is able to use the Built Environment Sustainability Scorecard (BESS) to assess energy and water efficiency, thermal comfort, and overall environmental sustainability performance of your new building or alteration. BESS  was created to assist builders, developers and clients in general to demonstrate that they meet sustainability information requirements as part of planning permit applications. BESS can also be used by any member of the community to assess the design of their home and find ways to make it more sustainable. BESS is owned by the Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) on behalf of the Council Alliance for a Sustainable Built Environment (CASBE).

If you are interested in using BESS or require and assessment under BESS please contact Konar Architects 

Cost Adaptive Design

Every design development undertaken by Konar Architects prioritises the cost of the project. We work closely with independent cost estimators and quantity surveyors and coupled with our in-house experience work to marry a design together with the client’s budget.
