Green design and construction strategies
Our world is at a critical point in its evolution. With global population climbing towards seven billion and with rapidly increasing development, carbon emissions, and degradation of ecosystems, our planet is being stressed beyond its capacity. The great test of our lifetime is to develop a new model for living and building within the earth’s capacity, while also creating a better life for all people. This is the grand challenge of our time, an exciting one, and rich with possibilities. We see this challenge as our inspiration for design: for creating innovative, healthy, and pleasant environments that people enjoy living and working in, and to do so with the least impact on our ecosystems.
Our team is committed to producing work that maximizes human potential, productivity and health. Every project is dedicated to minimizing the consumption of resources, reducing waste and pollution and restoring natural systems. We believe that neighborhood development, no matter its size, should embrace its cultural, community, urban, and natural contexts, so that the final outcome creates beauty and cultural meaning.
