What Houzz contributors are saying:
Marc Bernstein: We’ve always specialised in sustainable design at MDS, trying to somewhat lead and almost revolutionise the industry – but looking around me this summer, climate change is here. That’s the biggest challenge we face over the coming years as it will change everything we do as humans. It’s really important that everyone – all our clients and collaborators – get onboard and try to do the right thing now. Even if we don’t get there 100 percent, we need to try as much as possible. One of our goals for this year is to become certified as a carbon- neutral business, and we have a step-by-step plan to achieve that.Rebuilding Lives: Architects Offer Free Aid to Bushfire Victims
