What We Do
Cosmic Constructions specialise in ecologically sustainable building & design.
We are driven by a fascination of materials & construction; researching & experimenting with traditional building materials & techniques such as clay, lime & wood, as well as new sustainable products on the market that offer alternatives to concrete & plastics.
In addition to this we work in partnership with major cultural institutes to repurpose materials that would otherwise end up in landfill.
We believe natural materials improve our wellbeing and connect us to the land around us.
All our projects are underpinned by a consideration of site, space & people; we are conscious of the neuancises of light, temperature, location and individual ways of being in space. How our clients feel is always at the centre of the design process.
Our work is informed by the natural world and the relationships between materials, people, space & time. We use the lunar calendar in all elements of project management, from conception to harvest, to ensure fulfilling, ethical working environments & results.
