Sustainability Approach:

At dsk architects, we recognize the significance of an inclusive design approach that bring the highest standard possible to suit each project. Sustainability is an essential realm that needs to be woven into this high standard. While LEED, Architecture 2030, CHPS for schools, California Green, or other local agencies guidelines are helpful in measuring the sustainability performance, our philosophy towards architectural design is further holistic. Aligned with the established triple-bottom-line approach towards environment, society, and economy, our all-inclusive philosophy has been embracing the quartet of People-Project-Planet-Prosperity collectively. These concepts are not new, and we are proud of our attention to environmental issues that began in the 1970s. Aiming at higher performance, our emphasis is on the integration of passive ecological systems where constant evaluation is an essential component of our method throughout the entire process of architectural delivery.
