“The greenest building is one that is already built.” –Carl Elefante
Preserving buildings–and using them–is the best way to put into practice the environmentalist credo “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.” At The Johnson Partnership, we believe in using our historic buildings for the way we live now, and building new structures that will last into the next century. We use our LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credentials to inform our everyday architectural practice in our quest to be responsible to the earth.
