services: Our designs are elegant, sophisticated + eco-smart
We know that your project can look elegant and sophisticated and still be environmentally sensitive and sustainable. Together we can make an educated decision about the level of sustainability and "green" that works best for you and seems right for the project.
As professionals, we will educate you and other team members about "green" products and eco-sensitive building methods. We address "green" issues that make sense during all levels of design, site planning and selection of materials, equipment, fixed finishes and furnishings.
We have successfully integrated geothermal pumps, solar panels, vacuum-tube energy collectors, reclaimed building materials, SIPs, site protective construction practices, non-toxic finishes, energy-efficient equipment, smart appliances, low-VOC paints and adhesives and all-natural stains, just to name a few.
We collaborate with an energy modeler and mechanical engineer on each of our projects. Together we use sophisticated energy modeling software to analyze and select the most efficient and cost effective mechanical and renewal energy systems and materials that work best for your project. We also employ passive strategies such as solar shading and natural ventilation whenever possible.
A high level of design can go hand-in-hand with site sensitive building practices, eco-smart construction and sensitive selection of building materials. You can enjoy the benefits of improved indoor air quality, low energy use and the knowledge that you made your contributions for generations to come.
