We consider a project unsatisfactory if it’s just beautiful. We consider a project unsatisfactory if it’s only green — or only functional. We consider a project falls short if it’s not a good fit for it’s natural setting or urban context. We seek to create layers of value. Case in point: We were asked by Norfolk region based Haynes Furniture to do a facelift on their exterior facade. Our solution – create a facade that is beautiful but also shades the entrance glazing from unwanted heat gain. Beautiful and functional. We wanted to transform the parking lot to one that was full of trees and native plants that filter stormwater before it reaches the endangered Chesapeake Bay. Beautiful, native to place and green.
