Net-zero homes need to be affordable, healthy, and last 200+ years. We are architects working to build the most lean, healthy, and resilient spaces possible. Tend your planet, typ.
We have developed a method of building homes that we think is the most energy, cost, and time-efficient on the market. Our firm is committed to the 2030 Challenge and the Living Future Challenge. We use life-cycle assessment and energy modeling to meet multiple green standards. These include metrics set by the US EPA, the US DOE, and the International Living Future Institute.
We care about making design accessible to everyone in our community, so we offer four hours of consultation free. Tell us about your new home, ADU, or renovation. We can sketch out some ideas with you and offer resources for contractors, code requirements, and materials.
TYP is Mark Keller (registered Washington & British Columbia) and Annie Aldrich (registered Washington).
