Our architectural design services are tailored to meet our client’s budget and lifestyle requirements, as well as what they envision their dream home to be, whether on or off-grid.

Architectural Design

We design our homes to be energy and resource-efficient and leverage our expertise combined with the ideas and passion of our clients. We consider security, fire resistance, outdoor spaces and views, private spaces, hypo-allergenic materials and finishes, minimal maintenance and anything else important to our clients.


  • Innovative, Resource-efficient Custom Home: Design a home that incorporates our client’s unique lifestyle and aesthetics requirements, and uses energy and resources efficiently in its construction, operation and maintenance
  • Construction Plan Set: Provide a complete set of site and building drawings for building permit approval and construction
  • Design/Build Partnership: Partner with our client’s selected builder in the early stages of the project to ensure the home leverages the builder’s expertise and construction preferences
  • Home Manual: Provide a Home & Systems Manual when the home is completed, and a walk-through of the home discussing how to “operate” and maintain a passive solar home and its integrated systems
  • Green Building Certification: Incorporate green building certification requirements into the design, if desired
