project sustainability

Schemata Workshop aims for a holistic, sustainable solution to each project that comes through our office. Each project employs different strategies, and has different strengths as a result. For each project we consider
        
site - restoring a healthy relationship with nature
water - harvesting rainwater and conserving our resources
energy - moving toward a reliance on current solar income    
material - products and processes that are safe for all species    
transportation - creation of walkable, pedestrian-oriented communities    
health - physical and psychological health of the building occupants    
innovation - developing sustainable technologies and design methods    
inspiration - design that inspires positive change    
equity - projects that create robust communities and support social justice
