Studio Overview

This engineering studio is specialised in building envelope design and technology.
The studio provides joint interdisciplinary services in all aspects of facade design, technology and energy efficiency.

RMJM Facade has over 25 years of experience across Europe, Asia and North America in all aspects of facade design. The studio acts as a support department for architects and developers from the earliest concept designs through the tender phase and throughout construction. Sustainability is at the core of RMJM Facade’s approach to building envelope design. As the facade of a building can determine its overall energy consumption, from the materials used and technologies utilised to the placement of windows relative to the direction of the sun, RMJM Facade’s holistic design approach ensures that every small detail is considered to produce designs that are as efficient and functional as they are sleek and elegant.

 

From the first pencil and paper sketches to the moment the physical building is unveiled, RMJM Facade are focused on the comfort of the people inside the building; they design spaces for people. For that reason, they have a strong focus on sustainability. In addition to their design support services, RMJM Facade also audits other facade companies and companies involved in the construction supply chain; a reflection of their ethos of the importance of facade design.
