The proposed Larkin Building embraces passive design through integration of a green house, window orientation for solar gain, and high performance materials.
“As architects and designers, it is our responsibility to understand the impact of our built environment on our natural environment.”
Architectural Resources’ sustainable design practice has deep comprehensive experience assisting on the full spectrum of facility planning, renovation, and new construction projects.
We regularly provide partners with strategic planning, feasibility studies, accreditation and compliance consultation, in addition to full design and construction phase services for sustainable practice.
Sustainability is a holistic approach to design and construction that integrates the massing, program, technology, and materials. Our team has learned that successful projects achieve environmental responsibility with a balance of program goals, aesthetic design, and project understanding. Our team is working on innovative projects that will achieve net zero energy use.
The buildings we work, play, and live in greatly impact our overall health and wellbeing. LEED and WELL are two widely used building rating systems to score sustainability and factors supporting physical and mental health. A|r is proud to have a wide variety of certified projects in our portfolio, and to always design with these forward-thinking concepts in mind.
