As a LEED certified architect, I believe in the importance of a Charlotte, NC home design that encourages and enhances sustainable and environmentally conscious elements.
LEED certified architect in Charlotte – You may be familiar with the term “going green” as a new movement in our culture to protect our natural resources and conserve energy at work and at home. Determining the best ways to achieve a “green” approach to living can be difficult when we live in a society of consumer waste and excess. As a LEED certified architect, I believe in the importance of a home design that encourages and enhances sustainable and environmentally conscious elements while maintaining the integrity of your vision. LEED certified refers to certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.
This certification is part of the internationally recognized Green Building Rating System, which emphasizes a commitment to the environment through:
- Optimized building locations and the minimized use of non-renewable energy.
- Reduction in water consumption and providing a healthy setting in which to work and live.
- Considerations of the total effects of the building on the environment.
As a LEED certified architect, I use this as a tool to help lessen the impact of your home building project on the environment and incorporate sustainable and renewable resources. From the structure of your home to the landscape design to energy consumption, I can design a home that is environmentally conscious, but still incorporates the design elements you have in mind. My objective is to keep costs down and address your needs while creating a design that enhances your perfect idea of “home.”
