A successful project addresses the Owner, the occupants, and their environment with creativity and elegance.

Environmentally sensitive design is more than a trendy aesthetic or professional responsibility--it reflects the way people work and live. Spaces infused with natural light and color are closely linked to increased productivity and a sense of well-being. We see natural materials and daylighting as essential to both worker- friendly and positive learning environments, and believe it makes a house a home.

Mente Sowell Architects, Inc. belongs to the US Green Building Council and the Austin Energy Green Building Program. We approach each project as an opportunity for increased efficiency in envelope and systems design in order to provide reduced operating costs for both homeowners and businesses. Providing our Clients with a return-on-investment is a priority in our design process.

Sustainable design is not just smart design—it's good design.
