MA+SD is a full-service architecture firm focused on the creation of an appealing, healthy built environment which compliments and engages its surroundings.
The tailored design and detailing approach provided by MA+SD instills each project with a unique response to the aspirations of not just the primary user, but also the site, climate, context, municipality, etc. The specific response of a cold climate structure will differ significantly from that of a hot, humid, hurricane prone one, and similarly a hot, dry desert response as well. There is no single aesthetic of sustainability.
While third-party certifications can help guide a project to a sustainable goal, they are not the only means to that end. Using and reusing healthy, renewable, and local materials in thoughtful, durable, and enduring ways can be done with or without separate verification. And as with most things, there is no single magic solution. MA+SD is here to assist in the constant search to reach the proper balance of cost, health, function, ecology and longevity.
An informed client is the best client. MA+SD works closely with you to ensure decisions are based in thorough knowledge.
