Harvard Divinity School’s rejuvenated Swartz Hall is now LEED Platinum certified. Our design of this new campus gateway reflects HDS’s commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship. The existing granite building envelope is upgraded to exceed current efficiency standards using internal insulation, a seamless air barrier, and new high-performance windows. A new underground mechanical plant accommodates heat recovery and direct outside air handling units. Congratulations to HDS on their dedication to campus leadership in environmental sustainability.

Progress is underway as we continue construction on the U.S Embassy in Athens, Greece for The U.S. Department of State. Our design for the rehabilitation and expansion of the embassy revitalizes the culturally significant chancery, designed by Walter Gropius in 1961, and increases connectivity within the complex of buildings and landscapes.
