We are the first and only Certified Passive House design firm in South Puget Sound. We like to start each project using the highest possible energy-efficiency standards achievable, dovetailing that with the client's lifestyle needs and budget. Through a collaborative process, we will design a home that is personalized to the needs of the homeowner and maximized in energy-efficiency, site integration, comfort and beauty. We also like to empower our clients with knowledge about green building options and what that may mean to them. For a given project we quantify the sustainable measures and do comparison analysis and payback periods for the different green building standards currently accepted in the industry. With this information, the client is fully enabled to make appropriate and thoughtful decisions about what type of home best suits their needs.
Our company owners and lead designer are Certified Passive House Consultants and LEED Accredited Professionals.
As a company, we approach each job with a great degree of forethought, as we look for the most efficient way to build a home resulting in limited job site waste, what waste is produced is recycled. We are members of the local Certified Green Program, dedicated to managing commercially produced waste sustainably with an emphasis on finding alternatives to avoid generating waste in the first place. Many of our staff can be seen riding their bicycles to work as an alternate to driving a car.
As a professional team, and as humans on a big wonderful planet, we see the value in looking for a better way to use our resources and to discover beauty in simplicity.
