Our design focus is on integrating intelligent green techniques with aesthetic design. We use passive solar strategies that maximize natural heating and cooling as well as visual aesthetics. Our intelligent ventilation techniques, both natural and mechanical, create fresh air homes that are comfortable and healthy.
Our heating design is centered on maximum comfort and minimum cost. Whether it is a split system heat pump, radiant flooring, geothermal, solar thermal, high efficiency boilers or a combination, our heating and cooling systems are precisely fitted for the space and budget.
We specialize in what we call the “green aesthetic” or Wabi-Sabi design, which incorporates a lot of natural materials, from wood to clay, and provides a home that is soothing and invigorating. We combine these elements with attention to the overall Feng Shui of each microcosm and macrocosm in the home.
Overall we see the home as a living being with inner organs, lungs, a skin and a body. We attempt to build the home so that it will remain healthy and happy for many years to come.
Our background is in green real estate, development, renovation and sustainable energy. We are a team of green builders who are passionate about using old and new technologies to increase the quality of living while reducing costs and benefiting the environment.
We have a wide range of experience and certifications. Education, where we are either students or teachers is a big part of our process. We are constantly increasing our knowledge base as well as educating the community.
We are a certified green roof installer, green real estate broker, radiant floor specialist, green real estate manager, solar thermal installer, Solar PV installer, high efficiency boiler specialist, and green educator.
We focus these skills on building high quality energy efficient structures that last a long time and cost little to build and run. Attention is put on using salvaged, sustainable and local materials.

Eco Brooklyn’s Director is Gennaro Brooks-Church. Because of his interest for learning he holds several certificates, among them a NY Licensed Real Estate Broker, Certified EcoBroker®, National Sustainable Advisor Program and LEED AP. His real contribution is his passion as an educator, lifetime builder and author of the Build It Forward green building concept.
We adhere to the ethics outlined in our membership with Sustainable Business Network New York City. The ethical sustainable business practices are specified in the triple bottom line – People, Planet, and Profit. Every decision we make considers whether all the people involved, the planet as a whole and the bottom line of everyone involved benefits from the action.
As a continuation to this we build along the Build It Forward criteria where all building must be made to last at least one hundred years, be a desirable gift to future generations and not drain existing resources.
With this strategy we hope to turn Brooklyn green!
