Design vs. Green Design


Featured regularly in sustainable design classes, and part of local bay area green tours, The Plants have been designed using sustainable, recycled and reused materials to create a comfortable and lower carbon footprint environment.

The first two Plants won the Metropolis IIDA smart environmental design awards US wide for their use of reclaimed wood, recycled tile, solar power and an array of sustainable materials and design choices.

We continue to utilize new green methods as they become available, though perhaps the most ecologically sustainable aspect of The Plant is the food it serves... a commitment to providing purely organic ingredients and supporting ongoing conscious farming methods.
