Philosophy

We believe that by using good design and climate / site responsive design, a building can provide comfort conditions without the use of mechanical systems. Passive energy systems are added to the building’s toolkit to manage the next level of climate challenges. Only when these design strategies cannot provide comfort conditions should technology be applied.

The Common Good

Green Propeller Design believes that architecture reflects our attitude to our community. Architects can serve the community as catalysts for change, reflecting a generous and responsible society in the built environment.

Architecture that makes a positive contribution to people’s lives is our calling. It is our way of giving back.

Collaboration

From start to finish, we view architecture as a collaborative process and approach every project with a team spirit. Dialogue, consensus building, and goal sharing all contribute to the most positive outcome. The Integrated Design Process, and the search for design synergies, forms the basis for each new project.

AT GREEN PROPELLER, WE BELIEVE THAT SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AND GOOD DESIGN GO HAND IN HAND.

With all the knowledge we have today about climate, and our environment, we find ourselves asking the question: Why are so many buildings being unsustainably built?

The sun rises in the east, and sets in the west, and the heat from the sun is most intense in the afternoon and early evening. These are things we know. So why are there so many buildings with the same amount of windows on all four faces causing you to pull down the shades to stop the glare? It does not cost more to consider how much glazing should be put on all sides of a building; but it costs more in heating and cooling if you don’t consider it.

Good design will reduce your energy costs.

We believe that every project should be designed to respond to its site and climate. Natural ventilation and lighting, and highly insulated walls are the foundation of shelter, protection from elements, and thereby human comfort.

Every project can be designed to minimize energy demand.

Every project can be built to make use of passive energy (solar, wind, geothermal).

At Green Propeller Design, we have adopted the goal of “Architecture 2030”; which is to reduce reliance on fossil fuels, by dramatically reducing energy use – attempting to achieve “carbon neutral” standards by the year 2030.
