Paul Dowsett is the founding Principal Architect at Sustainable. With more than three decades of local and international residential, institutional, and commercial sustainable design and project management experience, Paul is uniquely qualified to lead a highly collaborative design team for projects of diverse scales, types, and complexities. At the core of Paul’s philosophy and practice is the belief that design and construction solutions should be simple, sensitive, and sustainable.
What makes a project meaningful and impactful to you?
I would like to see more adaptive reuse, deep green retrofit projects, with a strong social purpose, like the Egale Centre. These projects must work towards negative carbon emissions (carbon sequestration) through the construction and operation life cycles of the buildings.
