why design matters

the most fundamental requirements

of sustainable design

are often the most overlooked.

it is paramount that design and

construction be timeless,

adaptable and highly durable.

without aesthetic and functional longevity

in the finished product, all the green

 materials in the world will not matter ~

they too will wind up on the scrap heap

long before they've expired.

therefore, sustainable design is, first

and foremost, simply good design.

~ Gregg Brazel
