At sustainable architecture practice Breathe Architecture, the company applies the principles it uses to help clients create buildings with lighter footprints to its own office. Insulation, fans and smart design of window placement draw cool air in and push hot air out, negating the need for air conditioning.  Amongst other things: second-hand furniture and fittings save money and carbon emissions, and staff are given a sustainability induction to discuss these and other measures in place.
