I was particularly impressed with David, not just because of his substantive knowledge of environmental issues and green architecture, but because he was so willing to dig into this project…David worked very well with Thacher’s administration and Board of Trustees…He went out of his way to work cooperatively with us. He is truly a remarkable architect and this project is a job well done."

Sincerely, Michael K. Mulligan Head of School, The Thacher School

"I have known and worked with David for over 18 years, my first experience was working with David on design components for my residence…After my experience with David on my home, I asked him to create specialized, environmentally sound products for my business, Smith and Hawken…As (our company) grew, I asked David to be the lead architect for our company’s corporate office…I would highly recommend (David) to anyone contemplating a built environment that is fully responsive to the natural environment."

Sincerely, Paul Hawken Smith & Hawken
