FIRM PROFILE | Bright Common Architecture & Design provides a full array of professional architectural services from early stage programming, visualization and feasibility studies to schematic conceptualization, construction documentation, interior design, and construction phase support.
Our work is rooted in research, place, and continuous collaboration. As experts in Passive House design and implementation, we revel in exploring what’s mutually beneficial for our clients, the communities we serve, and a thriving planet.
In the past seven years Bright Common has implemented a building biology based approach to both renovation and new-construction projects including residential, commercial and mixed-use Passive House level deep-energy-retrofits, new-construction Passive Houses, and Living Building Challenge inspired work in both urban and rural settings.
The pursuit towards a carbon neutral built environment has evolved into ever more natural, biophilic and socially conscious approaches for enclosure and systems design with the goal of decoupling the constructed world from its century-plus-old fossil fuel addiction.
