Big Idea Architecture with Small Energy Footprints
  • about

    According to the US Energy Information Administration “buildings are responsible for almost half (48%) of all energy consumption and Greenhouse Gas emissions annually. Seventy-six percent of all power plant-generated electricity is used just to operate buildings. Clearly, immediate action in the Building Sector is essential if we are to avoid hazardous climate change.”

    Distill studio, an award-winning Architecture and Design Studio, was founded to create places to live and work that are not only innovative but simultaneously minimize their impact on the environment. We work collaboratively in interdisciplinary teams of architects, planners and engineers to respond to the many design challenges that face us today. With intellectual rigor, imagination and technical expertise we pursue simple solutions to complex problems by combining innovative spirit (the big idea) with pragmatic realities (cost).

    In a time when our energy sources are increasingly scarce and our control over them diminishes daily, hiring the right designer has critical implications. Choosing distill studio will not only afford you experience and commitment to good design, but expertise and commitment to sustainability. We do not see design, environment and cost as mutually exclusive but as complimentary parts of a whole that when looked at holistically can achieve optimum results.

    When designing buildings, distill does not lose sight of the fact that they are meant for people. Therefore, the cornerstones of our practice not only care about cost and budgets, but give value to design excellence, user comfort and quality of life.
