Briburn

Until recently, BRIBURN was the Green Design Studio of Yarmouth Maine. Near the end of 2012 Christopher Briley and Harry Hepburn partnered to form a new company with increased architectural abilities and experience in a wider range of project types. For seven years, the Green Design Studio specialized in energy efficient, environmentally friendly design, and completed several high performance projects (including the first LEED Gold certified home in New England). Now, as BRIBURN, the commitment to sustainable design is even greater. We understand the many tasks required to create a successful project, we are thoughtful, innovative thinkers, often developing unique ideas specific to your projects needs. Currently BRIBURN is completing a passivhaus / net zero home in Saco, a sustainable Veterinary Clinic in Cumberland, a Net Zero home in Parsonsfield, as well as several other sustainable residential projects.

Design Philosophy:

“architecture for life” is the creation of architecture that is timeless, environmentally friendly, beautiful, and long-lasting. Architecture that focuses on the experiences of the building’s occupants, enhancing their daily lives with natural daylight, excellent ventilation, and delightful spaces that engage their artful minds, architecture that is mindful of our finite resources and respectful of the natural environment. It is architecture that will stand the test of time by being very durable, simple to operate, economical to maintain, and beautiful.
