Accessory Dwelling Unit

Sustainable ADU Challenge

Join us in pursuing the challenge of designing and building the most sustainable ADU in the world!

One thing that keeps us passionate about architecture and design, is that we are constantly undertaking new challenges and learning about new materials, technology and systems. We love using this knowledge to make our projects better places to live for our clients, and more sustainable for our environment.

As a firm that specializes in ADUs (accessory dwelling units) we are constantly trying to balance modest budgets with the desire to pursue innovative construction techniques and lofty sustainability goals. We try to incorporate passive strategies in all of our projects, and when the budget can afford it, we look for more active strategies, like adding geothermal heating, solar panels, heat exchangers, etc. We do what we can to lower energy costs, reduce water use, and minimize our carbon footprint.

However, we feel that we are just scratching the surface of what we can do with ADUs. We would love to find clients that are ready to challenge the status quo and set lofty sustainability goals for their projects. We are looking for clients that want to pursue Living Building challenge certification, Net Zero energy use, and Passive House certification, among others.

If you are someone looking for an ADU and would like to collaborate to create the most sustainable project possible, let us know. We are open to the challenge and currently looking for people who want to push the boundaries of sustainable ADU design.
