At Kraus Fitch Architects, sustainable and socially responsible design has been the hallmark of our practice since our inception. Our projects include net zero energy homes, educational facilities, commercial buildings, institutional deep energy retrofits, and cohousing communities. We are a SOMWBA certified business. We were named one of the Top Ten Green Architects in North America for 2005 by Natural Home and Garden, and have received numerous awards for green design and development. We've strengthened our commitment to curbing global climate change, pledging to follow Architecture 2030’s mandate for dramatic reductions in fossil fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of the built environment.
