We are recognized in the Pacific Northwest for our expertise in residential green architecture. Our projects range from modest kitchen renovations to high-end new homes, placing an equal emphasis on style, function and poetics, woven together with the thread of sustainable design, and mindful of long term cost.

As a certified Passive House consultant, I aspire to have much of our new work meet this standard. With Passive House we can reduce the heating energy required for a house by 90% compared to typical houses–for a less than 10% premium in initial capital costs. The standard is applicable to multi-family and commercial work as well.

We have been in business for twenty-six years, with the last eighteen years devoted exclusively to sustainable design. Each of the projects we've done over the last eighteen years has demonstrated many aspects of resource conservation, energy conservation and healthier building. We believe that beauty is at least as important as the green materials and techniques we specify. We strive to make places that our clients will deeply love. We have excellent relationships with the contractors with whom we work. We take pride in designing buildings that take the real-world processes, tolerances and costs of construction into account. All of the consultants and contractors with whom we work are either members of the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild or share our interest in green architecture
