As architects, we are aware of how resource and waste management practices and design decisions affect natural habitats and livability “upstream” and “downstream” of our buildings. We believe it is our responsibility to reduce the negative impacts of development, to foster equilibrium among earth’s living systems, and to lead within the sustainable design community.
Our LEED-Accredited and Passive House Certified staff practices integrated design, incorporating sustainable strategies to conserve land, water, resources, and energy whenever possible.
We work with our clients to identify the appropriate sustainable strategies for each project. This includes designing super-insulated envelopes; incorporating reclaimed, non-toxic and durable materials; specifying supper-efficient mechanical systems, fixtures and appliances; integrating solar electric-generation and water-heating arrays; and utilizing graywater reclamation and rainwater harvesting systems.
