Addressing climate change requires us to change move beyond a mechanistic view of issues to an interconnected style of thinking; to look outside our silos as building and design professionals and connect our work to sustainable forestry, eco-agriculture and to movements for social & climate justice.
Sometimes we love our home for what we can see out of them, not in them. Our clients loved the view of the landscape out of their 1950s era raised ranch, but were not as fond of the awkward interior layout and sub-par energy performance and dependence on fossil fuels. We helped them to fix all that.
"When the folks at New Frameworks set out to build or restore a home, they aren’t just thinking about the individual needs of their client — though that is central to their work, of course. They also take the bigger picture into account, particularly their ecological and social impact, which weaves its way into every facet of the business."
