Buildings have an impact on the environment and the health and productivity of their inhabitants. At Lewis & Associates Architects, we are committed to an integrative design process which optimizes efficiency of building systems, and minimizes the effect of the building on it’s immediate and distant surroundings. Our building designs seek to optimize aspects of a building with observed impacts on occupants: lighting & daylighting, indoor air quality, and acoustical, visual and thermal comfort.
