What we do
STERLING PRESSER delivers innovative, elegant and sustainable projects. We design buildings, infrastructures, masterplans, interiors and objects with the common goal: to achieve sustainable projects. We design with the future in mind. Our team works on the questions of our time: can we change the way we currently live, work and circulate.
We deliver full architectural design services. In today’s world, designing a building is about much more than the development of a program into space. That’s why we question deeply any briefs to consider how to achieve any sustainability and environmental improvement. The ways people live, work and circulate is a driver for change. That makes it our responsibility to ensure our designs are flexible enough to move with any future challenges. Our team is set up as a single point of contact in order to facilitate the project development and coordination throughout. We work with flexibility with other design specialists, other practices, local partners and approval body. As the projects develop, we keep an involvement and a level of support and commitment up to construction. Together and in line with engineering and technical approach, we endeavour the full architectural and design review, so that the best concepts are adopted.
We cover the following phase
Concepts / Scheme design
– HOAI LP 1-3 , Germany
– Stage A to C, UK RIBA
– Stage Concept-APS French system, loi MOP
– Stage 4-5, Germany
– Stage D, UK RIBA
– Stage Concept-APD French system, loi MOP
Delivery and construction
According to the scale of the projects, we collaborate with other delivery architects and engineers in order to document and build each project in local context.
PARAMETRIC AND BIM TOOLS
– We develop very early the options study and the parametric study.
– We provide a BIM model from the early stages of design, with an integrated Architecture / Structure interface.
– We work directly in 3D with all the latest software, and we manage complexity.
Sustainable and Circular Design
STERLING PRESSER regards the earth as a closed system within which there should be no waste. The UNFCCC’s Kyoto Protocol and Paris Agreement leave no room for doubt: it is vital that CO2 emissions are substantially reduced, if we are to ensure the survival of humankind and animal life and the planet as we know it. New construction represents one of our best and greatest opportunities for systemic restoration: If built regeneratively, our cities can act as carbon sinks and create equitable development opportunities. We can do more than become climate neutral, we can be climate positive, create new value systems and promote equitable societies. New construction needs to be based on a circular, long-term approach from an early stage of the design process. It might sound obvious, but it requires knowledge and collaboration across many supply chains in order to realise such a process.
A Bridge is defined as a structure built to span a physical obstacle such as a body of water, valley, road, or rail without blocking the way underneath. It is constructed to provide passage over the obstacle, which is usually something that is otherwise difficult or impossible to cross. There are many unique designs of bridges, each serving a particular purpose and applicable to different situations.
