The demands of our society and communities are changing now more than ever. Buildings are a center piece in integrating personal behaviors, shaping communities and consuming our resources. As shapers of communities and designers of buildings, someone must assume the responsibility of how well the built environment performs. Through ZA+Dpassiv, we assume that role.

We are driven to design buildings as integrated systems, organisms if you will. Skin and structure interdependent, mechanics and insulation balanced, orientation and fenestration finely tuned. Our work is inspired by the need for lessening the impact on the earth and in so creating a healthier environment for its habitants. We rely more on science and less on standard.

ZA+D passiv delivers on the notion that architecture can be proactive and maintain strength in self expression. In short, to be active, we must design Passiv.
