Full-Service Sustainable Solutions

We take pride in the fact that we are leaders in promoting sustainability. As architects, we are uniquely positioned in our ability to reduce the impact of buildings on the environment, and are responsible to do so.

Our firm was an early signatory of the American Institute of Architect’s 2030 Commitment, which has the mission, “to support the 2030 Challenge and transform the practice of architecture in a way that is holistic, firm-wide, project based, and data-driven.” The goal of 2030 Challenge is for all new buildings and renovations to be carbon-neutral by 2030.

Jane, Michael and Tom are all LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Accredited Professionals, which is a credential awarded by the US Green Building Council to denote proficiency in sustainable design and construction. We work hard to stay abreast of new technologies, material science and innovative solutions.

We use building energy modeling (which is a software simulation of building energy use) to analyze the efficiency of our homes. Using the information from our energy model, we engineer the mechanical system in house.

Many of our clients have learned that producing their own energy with rooftop solar is a sound investment, both financially and environmentally. With attractive incentives like tax credits and net-metering from the power company, the investment cost can be recovered in 7-8 years, on average.
