Intelligent Building Design

As your architect, we can guide you through options to discover what is most appropriate to meet your specific needs.

As a standard practice, our firm always strives for an intelligent building design to mitigate energy usage. With the proper on site building orientation, passive solar design can be integrated into a project to optimize solar gain or protection and to optimize natural lighting. We also attempt to access available breezes to minimize the need for air conditioning, and to make careful selection of materials to insure the longevity of the building. A building in a natural environment can open to the landscape and the views, for a calming, peaceful ambiance.

Core Values

Clarifying the program. Start by asking the right questions and carefully analyzing the response. Seeing the design as a whole, integrated within its various contexts (financial constraints, site issues & advantages, code restrictions, desires of the client, intended purpose and use, the prevailing vernacular architecture & its intrinsic benefits & wisdom.

Creative Solution

Maintaining an open attitude to new or unique ideas. Gathering information to help make informed decisions. Helping the client by providing options, weighing alternative. Making recommendations in the interest of the client. Recognizing potential efficiencies that may be possible in the design, predicting obstacles to success. To be as proactive as is possible rather than reactive. To get out in front of the next decision. To relieve as much of the stress from the client by planning, organization, knowledge and experience.
