Eco friendly architecture starts with the basic design of your home or commercial project. This is because green home design is not just about using solar panels or tankless water heaters. It begins with how you design to the environment in which your project is placed. How does it sit in within the topography?

How is it oriented to the sun path? Will the placement capture the best opportunity for cross breeze? How will light affect the house and can you use natural light in lieu of artificial throughout the day? Once you design to these basic elements for being green (that are not costly), you can then begin to discuss elements like solar, geothermal, rainwater harvesting and grey water systems.

We hired Marc as our architect to design our home in Tucson. We could not be happier with his work and partnership with us. Marc is a fabulous architect with great ideas. One of the things that sets him apart is that HE LISTENS! He does not have an attitude. He works really well with our builder and designer and together they make a great team. Full review ›

Marc is a real professional and cares more about the client than himself. He takes time to go over all aspects of building a house and give great ideas. I would recommend Marc to design your dream house. He always met his deadlines. If we were to build another house there would be no one else to interview. You will not go wrong by hiring his company... Full review ›
