Green Building

From the early years we have pursued energy efficient design and development. The current sustainable and green culture fits our philosophy and allows us to share our knowledge and experience. Kip Klayton Architects believes in practicing sustainable architecture responsibly by designing shelter that will enhance the well being of its occupants and to honor the natural resources which are inherent in every site.

Through our “Three - R”s (recycle-refurbish-rebuild) program we have defined many benefits of “green” building practices that include:
