Planet: Passive-Driven Approach

Architecture affects natural settings, habitats, resources, energy, water, and waste. At dsk, our goal is to minimize any unproductive impact of our design on the planet. This goal is achieved via application of smart neighborhood and site strategies, pertinent building form and orientation, contextual passive  heating/cooling/ventilation/ daylighting systems, water management, waste reduction, smart material selection, reuse, and recycle, active technology systems and sharing economy.

 

This mentality has been also directing the manner our firm is operated.
