First things first: introducing Ekkist

We are leading a wellness movement for buildings by creating, and enabling others to create, buildings which are environmentally sustainable, use healthy building materials and which stand the test of time.

Ekkist designs and creates buildings which are focussed on combining three core principles: consideration of human health and well-being, high environmental standards and exemplary design.

Our Beliefs

We believe that architecture should contribute to our overall quality of life, health and well-being.

We believe in buildings which have the power to inspire you, grow with you, and have the ability to adapt to suit the needs of their inhabitants.

We believe in buildings being both beautiful and functional. Form and function are equally important to us.

“Architecture should contribute to our overall quality of life, health and well-being.”

Our Services

Ekkist offers three distinct propositions to suit our clients’ requirements: Build, Blueprint and Bespoke. Our consultancy and design services use principals from a range of building standards, such as WELL®, BREEAM, and Passivhaus® to inform our designs and advice.

Bespoke design and consultancy services for renovators, self-builders and developers, in relation to design for well-being. Bespoke also includes Ekkist Advisory, a design and consultancy service specifically for large developers and organisations.
