OUR GOAL—and the goal of many homebuilders committed to sustainability—is to make high-performance, low-energy homes widely available and more affordable. To do this means streamlining and optimizing all of our processes, while building distributed production capacity in order to achieve economies of scale.
At the same time, we intend to deliver homes that are responsive to particular site conditions and to our clients’ individual needs and lifestyles. For long-term durability and sustainability, they also need to be easily adaptable as occupants needs and desires change. And one more challenge: such custom-fitted homes need to be designed as free compositions from proven solutions, rather than as costly, risky creations from the infinite sea of untested possibility.
