Green or sometimes known as sustainable buildings are
environmental friendly. The designs are geared in saving utility energy
consumption and sustain human temperate comfort levels. These methods
are scientifically engineered based on alternative insulated materials
and alternative power. The appearance and style of sustainable homes and
commercial buildings can be nearly indistinguishable from their less sustainable
counterparts such as earth berming, solar panels, and recycled materials.
Not only green buildings lead to benefits of reduced operating costs,
but they may even harvest energy, water, and resources. Through better
sitting, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal —
the complete building life cycle is all valued. Most importantly, the
people who live and work are most valued with less environmental impacts
that increase productivity, and improved occupant health due to improved
indoor air quality. The ethics of practice of green design seeks to achieve
ecological and aesthetic harmony between a structure and its surrounding
nature and built environment.
Synergizing Humans with Environments is a body
energy relationship called applied "Kinesiology." Tuning our
body and environment to align with both bio/physical environment is an
art to seeking harmonious flow with living spaces. Colors, textures, geometry
and other physical/chemical influences may have direct impacts to each
individual differently. The program pre-identifies incompatible chemical
toxins and forms through real time empirical methods. By testing colors,
textures, shapes, material substances, one can ascertain the most effective
design methods prior to construction and find greater health and vitality
at home or work place.
Alternative Program Methods
Holistic Esthetic Design focus on healing environments
based on Intuitive Fung Shui/Wabi Sabi applications. An in-depth personal
approach to material, textures and form.
R&D Applications design for specific programs of
unconventional clients needs which demand complete design integration
to allow optimal blend of form/function.
