DIAP's sustainable design philosophy has been perfected over the last 35 years and is based on European education, Silicon Valley innovative thinking, and local vernacular!
Strategic regional planning principles, which lead to true sustainability, are at the heart of DIAP’s thinking. Inspired by local geography, history, and culture, DIAP uses a contextual approach to design site-specific plans which are integrated with the surrounding environment.
The idea of combining occupancies has been proven successful in towns and cities for thousands of years. Along with the benefits of sustainability, vibrancy, and 24-hour land use, mixed-use buildings spread market risk across multiple sectors and contribute to the high development value.
