Double bottom line for a building is one that serves mechanically and visually, and is a good citizen. Curb appeal extends to all elevations - not just the front. Buildings should be of their site or when reusing an existing building footprint as is common in Los Angeles, configured to meet new flow and aesthetic guidelines. A good building is not frozen music, it changes with natural sunlight, and night lighting considerations. It reflects organic principles and is sustainable - using only good quality ingredients, and landscaping which complements the architecture. It's balanced in design and unified through engineering. It's socially conscious with colors representative of the design aesthetic. Each building derives its own unique presence and is responsive to it's site with a cool roof, low impact passive and active solar systems. Finally, it is a harmonious whole which is the sum of it's parts, built with care and appreciation for the design.
