Sustainable Design in Practice

Principles of sustainable design are inherent in our work, and we approach every project with creative solutions that result in high quality architecture. We have a practical, working knowledge of energy-conscious design including passive solar tempering, natural daylighting, energy-efficient regional building construction techniques, and sensible design of HVAC systems. We utilize passive solar heating and cooling, photovoltaic power, and solar water heating.   When appropriate for a project, we incorporate catch water, graywater and backwater treatment systems.  Recycled and natural materials can lead to exciting spaces and cost savings. Our principals have designed, built and lived-in their off-the-grid home in Taos for the past 20 years.
