We believe that the creation of a work of architecture is a profoundly optimistic act. Hone+Associates has designed and built projects that have attained the United States Green Building Council’s highest levels of certification under the LEED rating system. We understand the collaboration, methods, materials and processes required to realize even the most aggressive goals of a green project. Our leadership will help to ensure your project reaches its full potential. In order to fully realize the potentials at a site, we explore the cultural and physical history of the place, including its topography and vegetation; the role of the property in the watershed; the passage of light and wind through the site; and its history of settlement. We believe that, at a minimum, we must greatly reduce the negative impacts our activities have on the environment, and we aspire to help lead our industry toward solutions that not only do less harm, but also promote health. At the core of the process that will allow us to move from sustainability to regeneration is an integrated approach to design that honors systems thinking.
