Evidence from scientific studies on biophilia from around the globe support findings that using wood in interior finishes reduces stress and anxiety and improves emotional states. So, it is wood that sets the tone for the newly renovated common area of the Hitchcock wing of Jefferson House, part of the Hartford HealthCare system that provides long-term care and rehabilitation services for Hartford area seniors.

Our Woburn Village project received a "Very Favorable" rating in a MAPC Study, and was also used as a case study, as the project shows the potential for transforming strip malls.

Redeveloping the most favorable 10 percent of suburban strip malls in the Boston region would meet a major portion of the area’s housing needs in the next decade, according to a study entitled “Rethinking the Strip” done by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council.

“Retail strip redevelopment … allows communities to accommodate new growth without the loss of the valuable open space required for new subdivisions or greenfield multifamily development,” notes the report.

Rating Systems - Part V of our Sustainable Architecture Awareness Series with @bethpearcy : One of the first things we do as part of the design process is to define our sustainability goals for the project. Often that leads to determining a rating system or certification that fits the goals and the project type. Rating systems provide a framework for evaluating criteria compared to other similar projects. However, sometimes the goals of a project don’t fit into one specific system, or it is determined that seeking a certification is not the right choice for that project, in that case we will work with the client and project team to create an individual framework for evaluating progress towards our sustainability goals. Regardless of which of these is right for any given project, Amenta Emma is committed to maintaining the knowledge and resources to work with our clients to figure out the best approach for them!
