­­­SUSTAINABILITY CONCEPT

Our main objective is to optimize and simplify the existing design and specified materials:

  • Drastically reduce the number of different materials used throughout the project; reducing from 26 different materials to only 7.
  • Simplify the detailing for how all the chosen materials meet each other; thus making the installation much easier and faster to complete.
  • Drastically simplify the materials palette throughout the project, to have a powerful yet neutral background for the merchandising and products being advertised.
  • Following an integrative design process
  • Care and maintenance through the use of chemical-free cleaning products
  • Improve indoor air quality through the use of non-toxic materials
  • Protecting natural resources by only using what is necessary
  • Minimize Environmental impact by selecting materials that are free of any volatile compounds, contain high percentages of pre-consumer recycled content, and follow the U.S. Green Building Council.
  • Optimizing the selection of materials and reduce waste by selecting renewable alternatives
  • Reinforce the inside-outside connection by using the same material inside and out, therefore blurring the boundary and increasing the connection to the outdoor garden.

MATERIALS

Some sustainable interior design solutions include the use of 100% ecological and recyclable furniture, paints, certified wood, furniture items made from renewable and recyclable sources (i.e. cork, recycled woolform old kilim, hemp, nettle wool mix,  etc...), Bolon carpets (i.e. plastic based on renewable raw plant materials), and Phthalate free flooring.
