Bioclimatic design starts with an understanding of climate, site, program and the building’s potential geometry. This early decision-making tool can help guide climate responsive design and capitalize on the free energy flows of the climate to provide comfort and delight. Passive strategies can be seamlessly integrated with the architectural design concepts and the active building systems.



We work collaboratively with the design team to develop and test design strategies in step with the design process. We utilize analysis tools that work with common design platforms such as SketchUp, REVIT and Rhino. As the design progresses, our rapid performance modeling process flows into a more rigorous whole building energy model.

This is performance made beautiful.
