Sustainable architecture means not only efficiency of operation, but also design that passes the test of time, buildings that embraces the practical without sacrificing transcendent style. Centerbrook has shown itself adept at achieving what architectural critic Paul Goldberger terms ìa balance between esthetics and energy.î Centerbrook buildings endure because they are both highly functional, technically advanced, and a joy to inhabit.

Centerbrook's sustainable portfolio includes 20 LEED-certified designs with five that are slated for accreditation, highlighted by five LEED Platinum buildings and a Living Building Challenge project on the boards. Centerbrook and Hopkins Architects designed Yale University's Kroon Hall, which was chosen in 2010 as one of the top ten examples of sustainable architecture worldwide by the AIA Committee on the Environment.
