The fact that you are here means that you care about the planet, and are committed to a better future.  Welcome! (and thank you)

4D Design is a radical improvement upon standard green building practices which is holistic and geometrically based on the principles of nature. We consider the relationship of the foundations to the earth, the supply chain, the means of capturing water, the life cycle of all materials, and the experience of all inhabitants.

4D is about the interconnectedness of all things, and making responsible and aligned decisions at every step of the way.  We cover everything from the structural system to the view from your favorite chair, the choreographed path through your dwelling, the sounds that footsteps make, pattern language of the exterior.  

We give you the framework.  You just have to tell us who you are and what you believe in.


Design that Looks at Every Angle


Designing buildings is incredibly complex. This means it's hard to know what the impact will be of all decisions made during the design process, and what will make a development that serves its purpose, is delivered on budget, and is in greatest alignment with nature.


But it's not impossible.

4D Design breaks down building into its eight most relevant components, for architects, developers, designers, and everyone who seeks to bring about a more meaningful, sustainable world.

Caring for the Earth isn't optional.


“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.” – Robert Swan


4D Design begins with ancient principles and ancestral knowledge, combined with contemporary materials and technologies.  We create buildings that foster healthy communities while expressing the greatest respect and care for the Earth.
