Long Description of Services:

Arkin Tilt Architects is an award-winning firm specializing in energy and resource efficient design. Our projects embody a marriage of thoughtful design and ecology, creating spaces that are comfortable and lyrical. We pay particular attention to the integration of the built and natural environments—from siting to careful detailing. We have extensive experience with alternative construction systems, including straw-bale and rammed earth, renewable energy systems, greywater, and non-toxic and recycled materials. Our projects include residential and commercial, park buildings, religious facilities, and Eco-Resort planning and design.

We believe design is a collaborative process in which the client is central. We have no prescribed style; the particulars of the site and user needs and desires are the guideposts of the design process. This can be an enjoyable process engaging all stakeholders.

While the design process of each project will follow its own path, we have a basic design method. After defining a program (room sizes, relationships, views, light, etc.) and assessing the site conditions (topography, vegetation, climate, context, local traditions and available resources, etc.), we generate appropriate response strategies, and develop two or three schematic design options. We evaluate each option to identify the positive and negative qualities. From this exercise a final design evolves.
