Designing for life.
For nearly a quarter of a century, we’ve been at the vanguard of the sustainability movement. Passionate about designing places where human life can thrive and entire ecosystems flourish, we’ve developed a reputation for challenging the status quo. For blazing trails into uncharted territory.
Today, we’re still at it. We’re redefining sustainability as one of several interconnected parts to a greater, more meaningful whole. It’s a philosophy we call Living Design. By seamlessly incorporating sustainability, resilience, regeneration, inclusion, and well-being into each of our projects, we can help sustain life on earth—today, tomorrow, and beyond.
We design buildings for maximum energy efficiency and optimal indoor environmental quality. Because we understand that human and planetary health are inextricably linked, and that buildings can have a major impact on both.
We ignited an industry movement toward healthy building materials in 2008. Today, we continue to lead a healthy materials crusade through focused research and knowledge sharing.
The next frontier in sustainable design and construction? Engineered wood. We’re expanding our knowledge of the promise and potential of timber as the urban building material of the future. And we’re setting a global precedent for ultra-sustainable, carbon-neutral timber skyscrapers.
