Klimt Architects understands that we have a unique opportunity to provide ground-breaking design while reducing our ecological footprint. We see the unfortunate overuse of the catch phrases ‘sustainable design’ and ‘green’ all too often. Good design principles by definition lead to smart, environmentally responsible solutions to complex issues. Whenever possible we integrate natural day-lighting, natural ventilation, and sustainable materials into our projects to enhance the environmental quality of the space and reduce embodied energy. We strive to create architecture that will continue to be aesthetically pleasing, functional, efficient, and durable for the life of the project.
We believe that communication is the foundation of a successful project. This philosophy builds ownership and consensus among all stakeholders, and the involvement of all parties ensures that everyone understands the goals for the project while building strong and respectful relationships. Our process is always client driven. We ask questions to understand opportunities and limitations and form our design solutions to allow the client to make choices best suited to their needs and the overall goals of the project.
