Arc Architects

Arc took over a disused outbuilding and converted it into a new office for the practice. The move increased capacity by 50% while also cutting our carbon emissions by around 50%. Win-win.

We used a range of eco materials including wood strand boards, wool insulation, lino and clay plasters. The energy efficiency strategy incorporated wall heating and LED lights and was supported by the Carbon Trust.

The work created a light friendly place to work in a quiet courtyard in the centre of north Fife’s county town. It reminds us how workplaces design can improve efficiency, happiness and reduce our impact on the planet.
