At Studio Nigro, we believe in doing our part to create a more sustainable future. Building green is no longer just a nice idea. Green design and building practices are essential for responsible architecture and construction. Today, we have the knowledge and the data that informs our decisions. We now understand that buildings that do not use the latest sustainable techniques are detrimental to the health of their inhabitants and cause long-term damage to the environment.
At Studio Nigro, we are determined to be part of the solution, leading the way for our communities to become beacons of healthy balance between the built environment and the natural world.
Why build or renovate green?
It’s simple. Green homes help us take better care of our families and our planet. Green residential architecture and construction offer:
- Benefits for your family’s health and comfort. Building a green home means focusing on better ventilation and lighting practices and incorporating materials that are safer for human beings and their pets.
- Benefits for your budget because green design and green building reduce energy expenses and optimize life-cycle performance.
- Benefits for the environment. Green homes help conserve natural resources, improve air and water quality, lower carbon emissions, and reduce material waste.
Studio Nigro was an early signatory of the AIA 2030 Commitment, a national initiative to help architecture firms evaluate the impact of design decisions on energy use. Utilizing energy modeling software, we show clients how we can make wise and affordable choices, saving them money and combating the effects of global climate change. We are also active participants in Architects Advocate for Action on Climate Change and the Citizens Climate Lobby, both advocacy groups working for legislation to halt the climate crisis.
