We live in a world of limited resources.
As global citizens, our collective actions threaten to exhaust the few that remain.
At Álvarez-Díaz & Villalón, we believe, as architects and designers, that it is our duty to make more responsible choices with our designs.
We need to walk the walk: to live and work by sustainable practices. Every responsible choice that we make ~ or help our clients make ~ is simply our small yet significant way of contributing to the greater good.
We relocated our main offices to an early 20th century building in the historical area of Santurce.
We renovated and retrofitted the existing structure in order to obtain a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council as part of our ongoing effort to create a healthier environment, lower operating costs, minimize waste, conserve water and energy, and reduce our carbon footprint.
