Sustainable Design

Successful design and construction is an outstanding achievement by any standard, but deeper green aspirations necessitate demonstrated expertise, creative vision, and coordinated planning. VMDO’s commitment to Sustainable Design is reflected in our holistic approach that takes into account data-driven energy efficiency measures, natural site resources, and the human side of health, wellness, and eco-literacy to create environments that harmoniously connect people, place, and purpose.

Environmental Graphic Design

The Environmental Graphic Design studio bridges the gap between human interaction and the built environment through the use of color, signage, materials, exhibits, wayfinding, theming, and digital interaction – all carefully designed to evoke emotion, foster teachable moments, and provide deep content that directly relates to the architecture around it.
