Philosophy

HOLOS believes in structured and transparent management that fosters the best utilization of sustainability strategies and ideas.  Our paradigm, one of systemic change, requires a comprehensive and holistic recognition of our global condition. Because we are comprehensivists, a broad range of knowledge is critical to our service. It also means that we embrace the learning process, realizing that we are just as much students as we are teachers and advisors.

In addition to our professional practice, we volunteer lots of our time with organizations and causes that get at the heart of sustainability- people.  At the end of the day, we realize that it’s institutional, political, economic and cultural concerns that will make green development happen, not design or engineering.

HOLOS is all about striving to be sustainable and exemplary while continuing to raise the bar.
