Community Involvement

Green Design = Good Design

  • Beautiful
  • Enduring
  • Meaningful
  • Occupant Healthy
  • Energy Efficient
  • Environmentally Friendly

AMD Architecture is committed to involvement in activities on a local and regional level which are felt to have architectural significance or community benefits.  We have been involved with a range of projects from writing municipal High Performance Building Standards (HPBS) to designing a low-income green home development.  This involvement reflects our concern about social and environmental issues in architecture, design, and construction.
