Sustainability can be beautiful

Architecture can consume a vast amount of energy—from material manufacture through construction to ongoing operation of the building. It makes sense to reduce those demands wherever we can. Sustainability saves money in the long term—and doesn’t have to cost a fortune in the short term.

Our commitment to sustainability begins early in the process, with optimal building orientation, appropriate materials selection, and high-performance building assemblies.

We support local manufacturers and regional products whenever possible. We look for thoughtful, passive strategies where we can, carefully considering the environmental footprint of materials and means. We can handle technically demanding design tactics, but we also look for the simplest green building strategies.
