Janet Mellor Architect designs residential structures that integrate gently into the landscape and the environment. Clients are guided through the process of identifying energy efficiency, sustainability, and aesthetic goals. Through the use of "green" methods such as passive solar design, geothermal heating systems, heat recovery ventilation, and the use of products made from readily renewable and/or recycled materials, they are able to achieve those goals. Careful attention to the clients' practical needs results in a home that is comfortable, while also reflecting the personality, aesthetic preferences, and values of the owner.
