We believe in comprehensive design solutions that recognize and respond to global concerns regarding our limited natural resources, environmental pollution, health, and biodiversity. The process of building by its very nature consumes large amounts of resources. With elegant design, creative thinking and careful construction, buildings can be made to consume less and last longer. A building that functions well, delights the mind, and pleases the eye will remain farther from the wrecking ball. In addition, the integration of sustainable technologies like planted green roofs, solar power, water collection, recycled materials, and passive solar design doesn't need to look and feel like an experiment. Thoughtful incorporation of these elements and principles early in the design process can produce buildings that are rich, appealing and most importantly, responsible.
