Shaw and Jagger Architects offer specialised consultancy in Passivhaus design and PHPP analysis on our projects. We can engage with this exceptional world leading standard of construction early on in the concept stages of design to achieve optimal performance and comfort yet always still maintain strong focus on architectural design and proportion. We are liberal in our approach to all types of construction and styles of architecture to which we can apply Passivhaus. Renovation and deep retrofit offers the opportunity to develop projects to EnerPHit, sometimes by Component Criteria rather than energy performance, if the limitations of the building are too great. We can work with you to greatly improve levels of comfort, control of mould growth, air quality, energy consumption, daylight and projected lifetime of your home with the ethos and application of Passivhaus.

I have many years of experience working with National developers, on residential layouts and commercial architectural design. I am highly practical and motivated by good design both modern and traditional. Sustainability is a key word in these days of environmental consciousness, and my designs take this as a fundamental base, to achieve both client aspirations and Governmental requirements. To this aim I am actively pursuing modern methods of construction including Passive Houses.
Founded in year 2000, State of Design is a Cambridge based RIBA architecture practice operating in the Cambridge area and London. Over the years we have perfected flexibility so that in addition to our design skills, we can offer our clients efficiency and cost effectiveness that is hard to match wherever their projects are based. Our ultimate aim is to produce daring and innovative architecture that takes advantage of the latest technological advances, yet it is very personal and respectful towards for the environment. We like working with constraints and the design challenges they pose - in fact, the more difficult the site or the brief is, the better. We are problem solvers. Furthermore the experience gathered from working in the theatre and advertising realm is often channelled towards resolving architectural dilemmas, leading to visually striking yet always practical architectural solutions.
