Avoidance of the depletion of natural resources to maintain an ecological balance
From the self-sufficient ecological garden in the West Tisbury School (1987) to LEED-S Gold projects in Newton (2016 and 2019) to Net Zero schools in Lexington (2019 and 2020), our commitment is to help communities define their ecological balance with nature. The only certainty in a rapidly evolving world is change and adaptation.
Our contextual approach looks at the site and surroundings, the historical features of the community and its people. We consider the problems, the influences, and context. See, feel and hear the site and immediate surroundings which helps define limitations and reveals opportunities. This is a quiet time for assimilation, understanding, and emergence of formative ideas.
