Sustainability and Green Design
We believe that the idea of sustainable design cannot be separated from the everyday work of creating good architecture.
The Leopold Legacy Center, designed by The Kubala Washatko Architects, Inc. in 2007, achieved a 61-point LEED© Platinum Rating, the highest rating to date measured by the US Green Building Council. It is a net-zero energy facility and the first building recognized by the USGBC as carbon neutral in operation.
The experience gained from this project (and many others) has helped our firm develop an integrated, whole-building approach to sustainability and 'green' design that is both proven and pragmatic. Our goal is to integrate sustainable design principles into highly functional and aesthetically pleasing buildings that are sensitive to occupant health and well-being. We are a leader in the design of innovative, high-performance buildings that meet LEED© standards for efficient energy and resource use.
