Sustainability is the core of APMonarch’s philosophy: designing healthy environments.
APMonarch believes you don’t have to separate sustainability from design; rather they co-inspire to create beautiful architecture. With a growing portfolio of projects that are LBC, LEED and WELL certified, APMonarch is at the forefront of energy efficient design strategies that improve the ecological footprint. We maintain the most up to date information by staying connected with the world’s leading third party green building verification systems.
APMonarch views architecture as opportunities to dress the landscape. Our design strategies bridge the gap between the built environment and the natural environment. No two buildings are the same and each one should be able to tell a story by responding to its surroundings and inspiring its users. Our dedicated team of experts meet clients needs through dialogue, research, relationship building and inspiration.
Green Building Certification
APMonarch consults with other architects, owners, and general contractors on projects, especially those that require expertise around green building certification. In this role, we support project teams and organizations throughout the process from concept to implementation to achieve certification, including LEED, Living Building Challenge, and WELL. Through a collaborative and inclusive approach, our team is skilled at bringing out innovative ideas from all stakeholders to land on an outcome that reflects the shared values/goals.
Before committing funds and resources to your project, we understand the value of careful planning and informed decision making. Our feasibility studies include a thorough evaluation of all important aspects such as short term and long term goals, needs, code compliance, accessibility, scope, and budget. We are strategic in our processes and procedures to assist our clients with the decision of moving forward with confidence.
Community Planning & Translation
Our staff is multilingual and enjoys collaborating with urban planners to ensure community projects are inclusive to those they aim to benefit through translation services for process meetings, workshops, and any materials produced.
You can't solve a problem unless you know what it is. Planning & Programming is a process that, when looks good and performs well, can come about when architects and clients join in thoughtful cooperative effort. APMonarch utilizes an organized method of inquiry that considers four major components: function, form, economy, and time. These components indicate the types of information needed to define a comprehensive architectural problem. When growth is carefully controlled and forecasted it becomes the vehicle through which vitality is fostered and change is invited in.
Our work is human-centered. We create environments that raise the bar in improving energy performance and enhance the user’s wellbeing. Our design approach is intentional in regards to the users’ thermal, visual, and acoustical comfort. Our process always begins with thoughtful dialogue to learn our clients vision and objective. APMonarch engages clients to think critically and thoughtfully about their space. Our expertise allows us to deliver optimized spaces with purpose and function and realize our client’s organizational goals.
