Sustainability

In our architectural designs, sustainability is one of the first considerations. Whether it is constructing a new home maximizing the solar exposure or adaptively reusing an old building and its materials, we strive to emphasize long-term occupancy, use of local materials and labor, incorporating green products when feasible, and working with the topography rather than against it.

Our firm designs new structures, which reflect the rich architectural character of the past and use traditional architecture influence, but also specializes in the renovation and adaptive reuse of existing structures, striving to emphasize their cultural, historical, and environmental contexts.

Our guiding philosophy of designs being built on the principles of the past, lead us to the use of precedents to accomplish our client's objectives, while putting forth the best solution for each specific project. Foremost, we develop design solutions, based on a thorough understanding of the clients' needs and a vision for translating goals into reality.
