Created by the U.S. Green Building Council, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is "commited to transforming the way our buildings are designed, constructed and operated."
The International Living Future institute created the The Living Building Challenge (LBC); a building certification program, advocacy tool and philosophy that defines the most advanced measures of sustainability in the built environment.
We enjoy designing all kinds of spaces. Our projects range from residences and commercial to retail and academic. We believe that a space should feel comfortable and inviting while promoting health, productivity and flexibility. We start with programming and planning, then we create a color palette and space plan based on your aesthetic need. APMonarch works with clients in the selection of finishes, furniture and lighting to create a comfortable and visually pleasing space.
The WELL Building Standard is administered by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), which is a public benefit corporation whose mission is to improve human health and well-being through the built environment.
Sustainability is the true conception behind APMonarch and its philosophy; to design for a healthy environment. APMonarch believes you really don't have to separate sustainability from design; rather they con-inspire to create beautiful architecture. With a growing interest in projects that are LBC, LEED and WELL certified, APMonarch is constantly researching materials and energy efficient design strategies that improve the ecological footprint. It is our mission to create well-balanced projects for our clients that can ultimately benefit from the triple bottom line; people, planet and profit.
APMonarch views architecture as the beauty marks to cities and as infinite opportunities to dress the landscape. We are an Architecture firm that seeks to liven all surroundings with beautiful architecture that speaks to everyone. No two buildings are the same and each building should be able to tell its own story by responding to its local surroundings and stimulating responses from its users. From small scale residential to large scale commercial buildings, we meet our clients specific needs through dialogue, research, inspiration and expertise.
