blueandyellow takes ‘greening architecture’ literally. As humans we need a connection with nature for our inner health. Vegetation is such a vital design consideration because it can provide habitat, erosion control, stormwater management, oxygen, humidity, carbon sequestration, summer shading and of course, beauty.

blueandyellow integrates building and nature by design. Our solutions protect natural features, restore degraded landscapes, regenerate the environment and enhance the human experience.

Our site planning addresses the following:

  • solar orientation
  • spirit of place
  • access and celebration of arrival
  • views
  • site protection
  • brownfields restoration
  • indigenous plants and edible landscaping
  • building siting and massing which complement the landscape
  • green roofs
  • green infrastructure such as:
  • swales
  • permeable surfaces
  • reed-bed waste water treatment
  • night sky compliance

We bring nature inside through physical and visual connections and elements such as vegetated walls which contribute beauty as well as multiple environmental benefits.
