Sustainable design fosters the premise that buildings need to gather all their water, light and energy from the place they reside.
We develop integrated designs for various green technologies always striving to achieve the goal of ‘net-zero’ energy, water and waste utilization.
“Dancing with the Rain” - This project captures the seasonal winter rains, stores the water until the summer dry months and then uses the water to keep the vegetated living roof thriving.
The natural world has inherent design intelligence and by mimicking and working with life, we can develop ‘green’ technological systems that benefit humans and nature alike.
