At LAS, our goal is to create buildings that have a restorative, positive impact on the building's inhabitants and to reduce the negative impact of construction on the environment. We have practiced sustainability in architecture since the early 1990s and believe in using an analytical approach to optimizing building performance.
Additionally, LAS has become one of the first architecture firms in the country to adopt The 2030 Challenge, an initiative that calls on the global building sector to immediately reduce energy usage by 50 percent in new buildings and major renovations in order to avoid hazardous climate change.
