At Studio DB, we are at the forefront of this revolution, and are not just designing offices; we’re sculpting futures. Our mission? To make it easy for our clients to create environments that increase peoples' wellbeing and productivity. It's about crafting spaces that are not only visually stunning but also environmentally responsible.

How do we do it? Let's dive in.

A Commitment to Carbon Reduction

In a world under pressure from the climate crisis, Studio DB isn't just watching from the sidelines. Drawing inspiration from both our company’s rich history of over 60 years and our vision for a sustainable build and design culture, we have embraced the challenge of minimising embedded carbon in construction. We’re not just building offices; we are building a movement towards a greener future.

Our partnership with Netz Global is a testament to our dedication. Together, we have developed tools that allow designers to measure and slash embedded carbon in building projects. This isn't just a nod to environmentalism; it's a full-blown embrace.

Spaces That Speak to You

Studio DB's designs are more than just spaces; they are narratives woven into the fabric of the building. Our recent redesign and build projects for our offices in Auckland and Wellington are living examples of this philosophy. These spaces don't just comply with carbon reduction standards; they celebrate them.

From the moment you step in, you're greeted by a blend of modern functionality and nostalgia. The use of locally sourced materials, innovative design elements, and smart space utilisation speaks volumes of their commitment to sustainability and functionality.

Why It Matters for Your Business

In an era where brand image and employee well-being are paramount, the design of your workspace is a silent ambassador of your values. Studio DB understands this. We create spaces that are not just places to work but environments that inspire, attract, and retain the best talent.  

Our design philosophy goes beyond aesthetics. It's about creating environments that are healthy, enjoyable, and reflective of your company's ethos. It's a fine blend of form and function, where every square inch is designed with a purpose.

The Studio DB Advantage

Studio DB’s dedication to crafting sustainable workspaces, is evident from the  transformation of our Auckland and Wellington offices into exemplary models of eco-friendly design and functionality. These offices are net carbonzero certified by Netz Global and Toitū Envirocare.  

During the design phase, we focused on reducing high-level embodied carbon by substituting materials and adjusting construction quantities, successfully cutting our carbon footprint by nearly a third.  

We prioritised locally manufactured items to minimise the footprint further. Our approach, combines environmental responsibility with strategic design, and serves international clients aiming to reduce embodied carbon in fitouts. For more about our carbon reduction process, visit Netz Global.
