Dempsey Decourcy are Chartered Passivhaus Architects in Herefordshire with over 25 years experience working in the field of sustainable design.

Our experience includes multi million pound, multi award winning school projects, super low energy eco housing, small community based ecological projects. Our knowledge encompasses both modern architecture and historical buildings.

We enjoy designing with natural materials, working with space, light, colour and texture and aim to create buildings which are simple and beautiful. It is important to us that we design buildings which are appropriate for their use and designed to the highest possible ecological standards.

As a practice specialising in Passivhaus Design and previously certified through the Passivhaus Institute in Germany, we have the skills and experience necessary to deliver very low energy buildings that are affordable and consistently deliver outstanding results. Passivhaus design can enompass all building types from houses to office buildings to schools.

We are committed to holistic and sustainable development whilst having the experience to deliver projects to meet your needs. Carefully designed and detailed buildings which provide healthy, light and airy internal and external spaces for living and work can greatly improve occupant well being at home and productivity in the work place. In addition a Passivhaus design will dramatically reduce energy costs compared to a building constructed to current building regulations..
