Communication techniques

 

In our building and design projects we advocate a clear communication and decision making process. We share our digital information in cloud storage and use various project management and communication tools to keep the client and team informed and up to date.


Green resources

 

Our goal is to emphasize local resources, energy efficiency and recycled materials. In our projects, a slab from a fallen tree becomes a piece of locally made furniture and old barns have their siding recycled for new floors. Energy efficient, super insulated solar homes we design tend towards net zero energy use while staying cool in extreme heat without the need for air conditioning. Sustainable energy technology is rapidly changing, we are constantly adapting and reinventing our relationship with current trends. Yet, for millennium, builders and architects have been aware of designing buildings that were resourceful and energy efficient. Local materials, part of the eco system, often hold the solution to appropriate building techniques. Building in the right place, understanding sun cycles, natural systems, waters flows and micro climates all impact future building choices. We work to uncover and evolve the natural attributes of people and their environs to develop a transformative expression of place.
