Passive House Architecture
At MosArt, we are proud to be the leading Passive House architects in Ireland. Our extensive experience in designing and building Passive Houses has made us the go-to experts for clients looking to build energy-efficient homes and buildings. The Passive House standard is the ultimate benchmark in thermal efficiency, providing inhabitants with comfortable temperatures all year round without the need for traditional heating methods. This results in significant financial savings and environmental benefits.
Our Passive House architecture service offers complete design and project management services for both new builds and retrofits. Our team of architects analyze the client’s brief and the site’s context, establish related planning policies, and develop the architectural concept, ensuring the client is fully involved in the design process. We specialise in designing buildings that meet the highest energy, comfort, and health standards. Our expertise in Passive House construction allows us to deliver cost-effective and efficient projects, meeting the new nZEB (nearly zero energy) building standards.
A Passive House offers numerous benefits, including better comfort, fresher air, and a brighter, more beautiful living space. The cost savings from choosing a Passive House are also significant, with a reduction in energy bills of up to 90%. Furthermore, building to Passive House standards helps to reduce CO2 emissions and future-proofs your building against upcoming regulations.
Landscapes play an essential role in defining and enhancing the built environment, and at MosArt, we believe in creating unique, livable spaces that promote biodiversity. Our landscape design projects are tailored to create memorable environments that complement and integrate with the surrounding architecture. Whether it’s a small residential garden or a large development, we have the expertise to deliver successful projects of any scale. We understand the importance of incorporating greenery and natural elements into the urban environment to improve the quality of life of the people who live and work there.
MosArt is a leading landscape design practice that offers comprehensive landscape architectural services to various sectors. Our expertise in commercial landscape design is unparalleled, and we have provided stunning designs for hotels, restaurants, supermarkets, and industrial estates. We have also been the preferred choice of public bodies across Ireland, including Dublin City Council, with whom we have a long-standing relationship. Our experience in delivering inspirational landscapes for a diverse range of clients has earned us a reputation as one of the most reliable landscape design practices in Ireland.
With decades of experience in delivering exceptional landscapes, MosArt has the skills and knowledge to deliver outstanding designs that exceed our clients’ expectations. Our portfolio includes residential gardens, public parks, and commercial projects for big names such as Lidl, Ritz, and Dublin City Council. We take pride in delivering tailored landscape solutions that are not only visually stunning but also practical and sustainable.
Visual Impact Assessment
At MosArt, we are committed to promoting harmony between the built and natural environments through careful planning and design. Our expertise in Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA) has been applied to a wide range of projects, including over 100 wind farms, 20 road schemes, and residential and commercial developments throughout Ireland.
Our team of experts also conducts Landscape Character Assessments (LCA) to facilitate strategic planning for sustainable development, and we have completed LCAs for counties such as Roscommon, Waterford, and Cork. Our goal is to create a balance between human needs and the preservation of nature by designing projects that minimize negative environmental impacts and promote long-term sustainability.
At MosArt, we believe in celebrating heritage and respecting ecology while developing innovative projects. With our expertise in architecture and landscape architecture, we prioritize a holistic integration and balance between buildings, public spaces, and the environment in every project we undertake. Our approach to management includes communicating and collaborating with stakeholders throughout the process, while being mindful of conservation requirements. We conduct comprehensive social and scientific assessments, balancing economic and environmental responsibilities to ensure that our projects are sustainable and long-lasting.
Our urban design process begins with preliminary work, where we familiarize ourselves with national and county-based policies and objectives that may affect the development. We work closely with clients to refine their requirements, ensuring that the design aligns with their vision. For larger developments, we conduct baseline and initial impact assessment studies to assess feasibility. Our expertise in urban morphology allows us to create harmonious and integrated arrangements of buildings and spaces, while our knowledge of architecture and landscape architecture enables us to provide a complete service. We strive to achieve energy performance to nZEB, drawing from our experience in working on nearly Zero Energy Communities (nZEC) to create energy-optimized communities.
