‘en-de-mic’ … A plant or species… also, a building! Can you imagine? Imagine your property designed and built so integrated to its surroundings, that it makes it questionable whether it is manmade or if it’s nature’s genius who created a holistic haven! Smartly using local materials, renewable energy and recycling water and waste. Trees and vegetation bring shadow, and coll the air with great efficiency. Everything working together to harmoniously integrate a building into its ecosystem; becoming truly endemic.
At EFH Arquitectos it has been our approach to design since 1994. We are inspired by the Organic Architecture and Design Movement begun by Frank Lloyd Wright in the early-to-mid 20th century. Our work has been accomplished on College campuses, Corporate properties and Residential homes. It is our passion to work in harmony with the environment, while adding an innovative and practical value proposition.
The idea of ‘Endemic’ buildings is for buildings to grow on their sites and not be imposed upon them. Building smarter, while not necessarily less costly to build, it usually cost less to operate and brings efficiencies in the long term. By reducing the carbon and eco footprint, they ad Goodwill for your brand reputation, adding customer loyalty and enhancing the employee experience with better retention. They make inspiring stories to pass along and share. In addition to being green and functional, we seek to make them flow with practicality and efficiency.
