Sustainable design is integral to our everyday practice and its principles are incorporated into all project types and at every scale.
We are a well-practiced in working simultaneously at the Architectural and Urban Design scale. This natural integration of our working process enables us to effectively integrate an individual building project into the broader goals and context. Our team has experience working with building certification programs including; Living Building Challenge, Passive House, WELL Buildings, LEED, Enterprise Green Communities, as well as other programs to support the advancement of sustainable and healthy environments.
This process starts early and benefits from an integrative design process to integrate, share, and evaluate long-term sustainability design goals specific to each situation. Our unique design sketchbook process offers a solution to the challenge of integrating and communicating the information in a way that can be understood and utilized to optimize a decision making process.
Our ESP framework provides an ongoing balanced vision of the economic, social, and physical considerations of sustainable design decisions. Integration is best understood when looking across scales and exploring how the individual aspect relates to the whole as one ecosystem.
Our work is designed under the belief that Sustainability is not only about the physical design of a site and building, its energy performance, and impact on the environment, but also in its economic viability and social impact.
