At Elemental, we create spaces that feel good. We focus on creating climate-responsive designs and promoting critical regionalism, a philosophy that preserves local architectural identity while rejecting its non-functional features and meeting global standards.
The word ‘elemental’ means ‘to embody the powers of nature’ and this is precisely what we do. We make most of nature’s bounty by leveraging the natural solar, wind and water resources present in each individual site and its surrounding.
We approach each project holistically by designing the landscape and interiors along with the architectural design.
Geography is no barrier for us, and we welcome projects from anywhere in the world.
