NEW HIGH PERFORMANCE RESIDENCE

Hlevel started the design for a new modern 4,000 SF High performance home in the Seagate , Naples Fl. The 2 story waterfront residence will be LEED(R) certified and rated by the Florida Green Building Coalition.

What is High performance building?

“high performance building” means a building that integrates and optimizes all major high-performance building attributes, including energy efficiency, durability, life-cycle performance, and occupant productivity.

What is SUSTAINABLE DESIGN?

Sustainability is essentially a method of harvesting or using a resource so that the resource is not depleted or permanently damage.

SUSTAINABLE DESIGN = GOOD DESIGN

Sustainability is a big word today, but has been around since a long time. So how can Sustainability be implemented in the architectural design process wisely? Architecture becomes the reflection of the region it is built in. In Florida, even more precisely South Florida, the subtropical climate dictates a different sustainable design approach then in Chicago for example. Environmentally conscious architecture in Florida is relative to its environment and economy- and the ability to maintain.

 

HLEVEL and Sustainability

While Hlevel provides green rating for its designs like LEED, and the Florida Green Building Coalition, the firm goes beyond the rating system and creates a new outlook of long lasting, responsible design choices made based on a solid return on investment. Plans that integrate sustainability principles reduce costs and risk, raise productivity, produce innovative outcomes and enhance the client’s social responsibility and create healthier environments.

Since the firm’s inception, it has been pivotal in all of our work. And more than ever, sustainability is a defining factor in how our clients measure success. As the strategic importance of sustainability grows, we are leading the next frontier– through research, tool development, design, and the services we deliver. We are committed to the financial, human, and environmental sustainability of our clients and their projects.
