2AD Space & Sustainable Architecture
Architecture and the sustainable debate
We at 2AD Space Architects Inc. believe that, despite the obvious challenges, we are at the beginning of an overwhelming movement towards ethical and sustainable design.
As a practice we have invested both time and resources in ensuring we are an integral part of that progress. Our directors and staff are involved in training aimed at resolving issues around sustainable architecture.
Through ongoing investigation and discussions we ensure that the latest trends in sustainable architecture are fed to clients, the majority of whom are eager and willing to embrace new ideas and technologies.
Civil responsibility and 2AD Space Build
We acknowledge that our practice exists in a society that is still beset with inequalities – of income, access to design and new ideas.
To this end we have launched 2AD Space Build, which aims at providing free professional architectural service in areas where we believe good, sustainable design can make a difference.
The Ikhayalethemba Village (administered by the Nceduluntu Trust) in Nomzamo, is an example. 2AD Space Build has assisted in the upliftment of the Nceduluntu Sanctuary by providing expertise in the building of additional accommodation, a laundry and a bakery, as well as giving long term financial help to assist in the management of the village.
