Stewardship of Place & Resources

Resilience In Action
Arch11 is a signatory of the AIA 2030 Commitment, an actionable climate strategy that provides standards and goals for reaching a carbon neutral built environment by 2030.
Building Toward a Healthier Planet
Our high-performance design goes beyond basic requirements seeking to integrate partners, strategies, and practices to enhance long-term resiliency, functionality, and wellbeing.
Implementing High-Performance Standards
As a signatory for AIA 2030 Commitment, we are applying a set of standards and goals to reduce carbon footprints at a range of building scales.

Our practice has extensive experience designing to high-performance building standards: LEED, Passive House, The Living Building Challenge, and Net-Zero energy use.
Bridging Gaps Through Advocacy
Addressing climate realities requires collaborative strategies and engaging in resilience advocacy. Through knowledge sharing and community action, we collectively design a better future for people and our planet.

Efficiency, Durability, & Longevity

Sustainable and Resilient Built Environments

Arch11 is a firm of firsts. With 30 years of green building technology and integration, we are working to design all our buildings to limit carbon emissions through thorough evaluation of the economics of assemblies, the efficiency of building systems, and delivery.

Syncline House

First LEED Gold Home in Boulder, Colorado. Built with innovative renewable energy systems and materials crafted to last centuries, the house is a model of cutting-edge sustainable design and attains a LEED Gold certification.

Pearl Izumi

Pearl Izumi is on a mission to change the course of climate change. Expressing the dynamic and elegant simplicity of a modern barn, the 54,000 SF headquarters respects the company’s Japanese heritage, celebrates the natural beauty of Colorado, and demonstrates its employees’ passion for outdoor sports.

A minimal palette combines with a highly visual architecture form to create a low-impact, sustainable development.

Wild Bear Nature Center

The building, acts as a living organism, providing opportunities to teach about nature and how we inhabit and sustain the earth. Through its net-positive energy design and programmatic intention, the building is designed to generate more energy than it consumes, integrating 50 kilowatts of photovoltaic solar panels, a super insulated and airtight building envelope, passive solar gain and thermal mass systems, and natural stack ventilation system with highly advanced fresh-air delivery. Carbon positive wood framing will provide additional carbon capture throughout the building.
