Procter-Rihl architects specialise in urban realm and residential projects in the UK and the USA. Our architecture strives to be climate and culture responsive engaged with history and locality while forward-thinking. We apply passive principles such as insulation and orientation to reduce maintenance costs while improving comfort for occupants. Many of our projects use Modern Methods of Construction such as offsite fabrication to minimise site construction time and waste. We approach design in partnership with clients to address Climate Emergency carbon reduction targets though low carbon materials and low operational emissions.
