Green building takes a commitment from the building owner, the architect, and all those involved in the development and programming for the design. Team members become stewards of the environment providing leadership in evaluating the incorporation of existing buildings in green strategies and the benefits to clients, occupants, and communities.

Masterplanning and feasibility studies enable leadership to maintain consistency in decision-making by establishing clear goals and objectives. In feasibility studies for a new intentional community, Drisko Studio explored options for creating outdoor design elements and community areas nestled in the spaces between new and existing apartment buildings. These types of studies increase opportunities for capital investment by synthesizing multi-disciplinary work into manageable projects, providing a foundation on which to document decisions, and developing a vision for long term stewardship.


Planning for residential communities to be sustainable and promote healthy lifestyles was a core concept in the development of the design for this apartment complex conversion.
