LOWDO is an architecture studio that realizes high design through low cost, low energy technologies and solutions.
Our goal is more with less: Achieve high impact results with low environmental impact, low carbon/material footprints, and low maintenance energetics. We contend that meaningful aesthetics and design innovation emerge from bottom-up responses to low supply: In the search for new socioeconomic and environmental equilibria in society today, low is the new minimalism. We believe that humans and ecologies perform best at low stress levels, and that by optimizing efficiency we can both maximize the transformational power of built environments and inspire reflection on the contemporary world and our roles within it. As a low design office we work to construct buildings and create places that amplify opportunities for all people, regardless of class and culture.
