Living Shelter Architects joins Board & Vellum! Learn about the details here, and cheers to our expanded team!

Building a “green” project is both important and complex.

Understanding each project’s needs is critical for success. Eco-conscious design is not a blanket treatment.

Sustainable design is more than fulfilling the requirements of a checklist — although those metrics can often be a helpful guide. Truly effective green design requires a careful and considerate approach to the specific site conditions. At the start of every project, we create a series of recommendations and approaches to ensure that your project is as sustainable as it can be. We focus on what is appropriate for the specifics of your property, feasible for your budget, and how it will improve the quality of life of everyone who inhabits the space.
