Design Approach

The majority of design problems involve a balanced combination of functional and creative problem-solving techniques with wide-ranging factors that differentiate the design professional in improving the built environment. Although design approach at its most basic level is about defining a problem and developing a solution, Urban Architects approaches each program with the knowledge that it takes collaboration between architect and client to develop an appropriate solution to a design challenge. Through needs-assessment, dialogue, and our collective experiences, we work together to analyze project needs then synthesize a solution based on those requirements.

Environmental Design

Urban Architects utilizes environmentally friendly materials and design techniques wherever possible. In many cases a passive approach may be possible with minimal initial cost and simple planning techniques. In other cases, active techniques would require additional project costs, planning and owner commitment to integrate into proposed projects. Urban Architects by way of best practices strive to utilize fairly simple techniques such as specifying non-toxic finishes, utilizing local materials wherever possible and attempting to optimize energy efficient systems. For many building owners and operators understand inefficient use of natural resources through high energy usage but may fail to understand the complexity in eliminating or reducing the problem that can be reverted through smarter design planning.
