Why you need to use a firm specializing in High-Performance Architecture:
By designing for more than just aesthetics (although that is still at the heart of what we do), you are adding extreme value to your project. Value is more than just the bottom line of construction costs, but the value of providing a better performing space for the end users.
We consider buildings as the Human Environment Interface (HEI) and they should serve to enhance the way you experience the environment around you. This is in addition to the savings you can realize in the cost of construction.
You will see benefits in your Triple Bottom Line:
Good design for the users
Good design for the community
Good design for the environment
QUANTITY VS QUALITY
Why not both? Aesthetically pleasing spaces that perform is what we do. The quality of the design will be apparent in your experience, but the quantity of the performance of the building will be shown through data-drive analysis.
