Green Architecture and Planning

Re:Vision is known as a green firm –  but green is not the tail that wags the dog.  Our design motivation is to provide more (daylight, health, appeal, connection) and use less (energy, natural resources, toxicity, maintenance).  The challenge of authentic sustainability never gets old as we combine climate-responsive, community-oriented, and sensorially-compelling design strategies that have evolved over thousands of years with the latest methods and technologies.

At the outset of design, we are first students of the client, site, and context.  With this understanding, we transition to guides and facilitators—illustrating a range of possibilities and quantifiable implications.  Through collaborative review and refinement, we arrive at hard-working design solutions that elegantly achieve many goals at once.  The project details are personal to each client but the larger themes elevate what is possible for us all to live and develop more sustainably.
