Built Environments

Generating Value with Regenerative Design

Our consulting service includes an advisory on sustainability and regenerative design in the built environment. 

Integrating sustainability and regenerative design into a real estate project is shifting rapidly from a visionary aspiration to practical necessity. The emerging case studies and best practices demonstrate how regenerative built environments reconnect humans and nature, support human well being, cultivate eco-stewardship, and increase the long-term value of properties.

Sustainability and Regenerative Design

Sustainability in real estate includes executing strategies, applying techniques and implementing tools to reduce energy use and reduce the carbon emissions of buildings. 

The focus is on maintaining systems while significantly reducing or minimizing harmful impacts on the environment.

Regenerative design goes further, with a focus on restoring socio-ecological awareness and balance. Practitioners exert a holistic approach. 

Multidisciplinary teams work to achieve net-positive impacts and to restore natural environments. Regenerative designers support the creation or renovation of buildings and communities by nurturing the healthy connections and interdependence between natural and built environments.

Biophilic Design



"Biophilic design is the deliberate attempt to translate an understanding of the inherent human affinity to affiliate with natural systems and processes--known as biophilia--into the design of the built environment."
-Stephen Kellert




A biophilic approach to architecture and interior design incorporates natural elements, shapes, patterns, and processes into the built environment. By deepening awareness of the human-nature relationship and focusing on the natural habitat, ecology, climate, and culture, a biophilic design framework invokes an integrated socio-ecological narrative that respects the spirit of the place and promotes the well being of occupants. 

We offer the following biophilic design options:

Information services and recommendations -- presentation of biophilic design principles and elements, innovations, solutions, and case studies -- which can inform and support a regenerative real estate project team.



"Think of biophilic design as the human interface to the project's engineered systems and architectural elements."
-International Living Future Institute


The biophilic design exploration, framework, and plan includes a charrette for stakeholders at project inception. The exploration process is documented, and the resulting biophilic framework and detailed plan can be incorporated into the overall project design.

Biophilic Design EXPLORATION

*Research and discovery
*Charrette(s) with stakeholders
*Documentation of the exploration

Biophilic Design FRAMEWORK and PLAN

*Framework outlining strategies for integrating biophilic design into the project
*Plan/guiding document for the implementation of the biophilic design goals
