With over a decade of industry experience, Sid Thoo is an award-winning architect, educator and consultant who can help you design a quality, eco-effective home that is more sustainable and won’t cost a fortune.
WHO AM I?
I help all kinds of people design and build homes and buildings that are environmentally, socially and economically more sustainable. Sustainability is a word that gets used (and abused) more often than not, so I tend to describe the work I do as eco-effective. I also try to adopt an integral approach towards sustainable design.
I’ve been running my own practice since 2013, and for the past six years my hourly rates haven’t changed; we’ve worked really hard to keep our overheads low and ensure we are providing great value for money with our service.

There’s much more to be gained from an energy rating tool than the number of Stars. Sid Thoo and Alex Raynes-Goldie demonstrate how an energy rating tool can help tweak the building’s orientation, materials, shading and more.
