Some people use the word ‘green.’ Some professionals use the word sustainable. The Schimberg Group's approach to architecture and interiors is about responsibility. Green is a color. Sustainability describes the future. Responsibility represents the here and now. We take ownership of decisions made for our environment, our lifestyles and our structures.
• Responsibility is considering site orientation for maximizing sunlight and passive cooling.
• Responsibility is selecting easily maintainable and recyclable materials.
• Responsibility is designing to a budget and communicating regularly.
As Spider-Man’s uncle said, “With great power, comes great responsibility.” The power to shape the built environment warrants an architect’s great responsibility to do it properly.
