Jade3 Architectural Philosophy
Jade3 Architecture team are fortunate to have forward thinking designers that provides creative and imaginative design that are practical with tried and tested technically proven solutions that are deliverable. The design are inspiring to people with creative spaces that they can be enjoyed by all walks of lives. At the same time assessing the maximum nett to gross densities to ensure its financial viabilities of a project. Jade3 Architecture offer support to in house design teams within the various construction sectors. Jade3 Architecture has a wealth of local knowledge coupled with mixed use experience that could add value through quality design for any projects within the building industries.
Jade3 will provide flexibility in design approach so that the building can be adaptable for future new change of uses to suit the economic climate or end-users.
Jade3 is able to provide ideas on how sustainable design approach on the outset can assist to improve long term running costs and add value to a development. The functionalism of the building maybe derived from sustainable form but is later followed by its actual function.
3 Founding Directors has different specialism but compliment each other to provide comprehensive solutions. Although Jade3 is supported by cutting edge software and computer systems, 3 founding directors still believes traditional hand drawing skills is the most effective way to communicate initial ideas from imagination onto paper. Hand drawing skills are a vital part of the creative process not only for sketching artistic ideas but extending through to creating practical sketches for technical solutions before using the sophisticated CAD systems.
Jade3 Urban Masterplanning
Jade3 Urban Masterplanning team with experienced urban masterplanners that can assess maximum site densities to ensure its financial viabilities of sites to avoid abortive work. The urban masterplanning approach relies on the real understanding of all the building use classes and its associated operational needs, site constraints and market viability. As a result, the urban masterplanning forms will be practical and deliverable. Most importantly the development cluster needs to be flexible and easily adaptable for different uses or building sizes as a result of market led enquiries.
Jade3 approach to masterplanning do not only provides an interesting pattern on site plan form but also practical and interesting with minimum road and landscape buffer infrastructure so that the project is financially viable on the outset. The urban masterplanning assists to create maximum developable clusters for ease of phased developments and disposals to third parties. Jade3 also assist to provide design coding reports for large masterplanning sites to ensure that the design principles are taken on board by third party developers should development clusters be sold off separately.
