I'm a Houzz contributor, designer, and LEED AP living in Italy. I work together with my husband, who is an architect and Certified Passivhaus Designer. We offer architectural design and sustainability consulting to homeowners and design professionals all over the world.

While I am originally American and my husband is Italian, our business was born when we met in Australia. We now use our international expertise in the field of sustainable design to offer best-practice consulting to other architects/builders and integrated designs to private clients.

We are experts in Passive design, LEED certification, CasaClima, and many other environmental building standards, and we are well versed in energy simulations, thermal calculations, and quality control in construction.

For more information about our international consulting services to homeowners and professionals alike, please see our website (www.emuarchitects.com).
