Architecture for the public sector

Architecture for the public sector plays a crucial role in creating a sense of place, space and identity.

Great design helps us connect with each other. It can also promote good mental and physical health. Here at Humber Architecture, we recognise the ever-present constraints in the public sector and the scrutiny involved in government-funded projects. Equally, we understand the need to balance form with function: not only does a public space need to look pleasing, but it must also perform outstanding well – and last the test of time.

Quite a tick list.

What We Do

Humber Architecture is an architectural technology practice that serves the needs of the public sector in and around Brighton and Hove.

What is architectural technology? In a nutshell, it’s about social well-being, so our skills strongly suit state sector schemes.

Our work combines creativity and innovation with design, architecture, technology, engineering and science. We aim to ensure that through our drawings, advice and guidance, external and internal public spaces are one hundred per cent appropriate and fitting for the people who will use them each and every day.

Sustainability in the Public Sector

There is no second chance for our natural resources. There has to be a better way – and there is.

Therefore, we focus entirely on sustainable designs that won’t compromise our planet. You need buildings that preserve energy, maximise your budget and that are, as much as possible, future-proofed. So, that’s what we will deliver.
