Historic Preservation

We consider ourselves fortunate to practice design in an area rich with architectural heritage.  We thrive on preserving the rich history of buildings in New England through the appreciation of and dedication to stewardship of place.

Site Design

Our universal approach to design puts a strong emphasis on developing the site and surrounding environment in order to fulfill programmatic, climactic and aesthetic needs.  Site and building design are integrated to limit impact on the environment and to orient spaces to flow logistically, utilize solar orientation and optimize site development.  This approach creates responsive solutions to individual design challenges.

Planning

We are experts in providing specifically tailored, practical design planning solutions for our clients.  Employing extensive research and thorough analyses and establishing a clear understanding of client and community desires, we develop plans that will succeed in the present and the future.

Sustainable Design

At Lassel Architects, sustainable design is regarded as a standard method of practice, not a specific exception to selective projects.  Our work always denotes proficiency in today’s sustainable design, construction and operations standards.  We continually expand our knowledge base in sustainable design principles, keeping abreast of the most resent design and building techniques that conserve natural resources, promote the re-use of materials, reduce waste and lower energy consumption and operational costs.

Energy Consulting

Our team integrates energy-efficient design concepts and alternative energy technologies to minimize overall consumption while optimizing the space itself.  With a Certified Passive House Consultant (CPHC) currently on staff, we have the expertise and knowledge to work with clients to define energy needs and determine the best way to meet project goals.  At Lassel Architects, our goal is to help the environment by optimizing a project’s energy efficiency while helping clients save money.
