Bere:architects is an award-winning architectural practice, passionately delivering the ultimate in beautiful, comfortable, high-performance and truly sustainable buildings. We deliver the future of architecture right now.

Our buildings are almost unique in mostly being compatible with this vision, looking after the needs of our clients with great care, but without compromising the needs and opportunities of the future – this is the very definition of sustainability.

Founded by Justin Bere, the practice produced some of the UK’s first PH buildings: London’s first PH home, UK’s first PH Social Housing, UK’s first PH CSH level 6 home, UK’s first PH non-domestic retrofit, and most recently setting a new benchmark for performance with the UK’s first PH Plus home, proven by two years of monitoring. Bere:architects also won both of the BRE PH housing competitions (2009, Ebbw Vale & 2012 Watford).

The practice has carried out and published a substantial amount of R+D work with academic partners, some of it funded by the Technology Strategy Board (renamed Innovate), some of it peer-reviewed academic papers, and much of it self-funded, and a substantial amount of this research work is freely available on the practice’s website.

The practice launched and co-organised the UK’s first two annual Passivhaus Conferences in Camden Town Hall in 2010, and Islington Town Hall in 2011 and the first annual student Passivhaus Conference at the University of East London in 2010. These were largely free and hugely successful events that helped increase the PH uptake amongst architects, and launched the Passive House concept to the public and politicians

We are widely respected and trusted for our integrity and that of our clients, not least among local authority planning departments and this brings with it significant commercial advantages for our clients, rewarding them for their genuine commitment to the health of communities and the environment.
