The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope.”

sustainability commitment

Buildings account for 45% of overall energy consumption worldwide, and 39% of global greenhouse emissions. The U.S. Green Building Council estimates that emissions from buildings will increase an additional 1.8% by 2030. Furthermore, the construction industry contributes to up to 50% of landfill waste, 40% of drinking water pollution, and 23% of air pollution.

nth° architecture + interiors is committed to lessening buildings’ impacts on the environment through thoughtful consideration of each design element, system, and material that goes into your project.  That’s why, on every project, we work with our clients to explore options to improve building performance and select materials that are durable, sustainable, and safe, leading to buildings that are not only better for the environment, but are less costly to operate and healthier for their occupants.

A path, not a choice

No client should have to decide to go green.  Employing smart, economical strategies can be an intrinsic part of any project.  That’s why we will always make recommendations that are tested and affirmed to provide the path that allows you to deliver an end result you can be proud of.  At nth° architecture + interiors, our commitment to our clients and our environment are fundamentally one and the same.  

Understanding your Triple Bottom Line

As LEED and WELL accredited professionals, we help you navigate various strategies to ensure that your project is not only good for its inhabitants and the environment, but also for your budget. Whether it’s exploring renewable energy sources to save operating costs, specifying water saving plumbing fixtures, or designing spaces that increase user comfort and productivity, we find solutions that are sized for your needs today and into the future.

small moves, BIG IMPACT

A project involves many decisions.  But some of the most impactful decisions can be some of the simplest: using more of what exists in a building as opposed to removing it and replacing it; choosing more durable materials that don’t require constant maintenance and frequent replacement; selecting finishes that are not only simple and beautiful, but safer for the user.  These small moves add up to big impacts on your budget, your users’ experience, and your project’s carbon footprint.  nth° architecture + interiors helps clients make the right moves to achieve the projects goals in a sustainable manner.

Sustainability at Any Scale

Want to go ‘net zero’?  LEED or WELL platinum?  Passive House?  No problem!  We have the connections and resources to help you achieve whatever sustainability and wellness goals you may have for your project!  

No matter your goals, we can’t wait to help you get there.  Let’s get to work!
