As designers and industry professionals, it is our responsibility to promote these pillars as central considerations for all of our clients and design teams. Through close collaboration throughout our projects, effective and evolving strategies can be established appropriate to each individual development. At C+W O’Brien Architects, we believe no project should impose unacceptable burdens on local eco-systems, we strive to deliver projects that promote human well-being and environmental performance.
