Matthew E. Bachardy, Assoc. AIA
Mr. Bachardy has 34 years experience in design and building and has developed a practice that is expert in practical sustainable design. He has conducted a design-build venture since 1993, designing and building many Sustainable Architectural projects, initially focusing on rainwater collection systems in various settings.
Mr. Bachardy has a great deal of hands-on experience in Architecture and construction, having completed several hundred successfully “green” projects. This in-depth knowledge allows him to easily visualize how a building works with its site and how the vast array of materials and systems that make up a modern building work together during the design, research, documentation and construction administration process.
Mr. Bachardy’s design philosophy places an emphasis on combining artistically designed buildings integrated with their site to create a sense of belonging. He employs strategies such as environmentally sensitive use of land, resource and energy efficiency, and alternative construction materials / systems. His main goal is to create pleasing, comfortable, and healthy built environments with respect to the land and the region where the project is located.
