The built environment is a substantial contributor to a variety of environmental and health impacts. Lake|Flato strives to create restorative environments that reduce carbon emissions and enhance our understanding and relationship to the natural world. Lake|Flato’s work reflects the belief that sustainability and design are two sides of the same coin — balanced, integrated, and inseparable. We strive for a healthy, coherent, place-based approach to building.
Our 14 AIA Committee on the Environment (COTE) Top Ten Awards - the industry’s best-known award program for sustainable design excellence, a recently certified Living Building and numerous LEED Platinum and Gold certified projects attest to our passion for a high-performance sustainable architecture that thoughtfully engages and enhances its place.
