..Hannah Wear – Chief Associate/Studio Coordinator
Hannah coordinates the operations of the ELWA Studio and is a Project Manager and our systems expert with a broad understanding of contemporary and alternative mechanical systems. She is particularly interested in assessing the needs and parameters of our clients and integrating innovative solutions that are thoughtful and effective in providing for these needs. She is a specialist in passive and active solar design and has hands on experience working with solar electric and wind power generation systems. Hannah is concerned about the environmental quality of the materials we use in buildings and has extensive knowledge on environmentally responsible building products. She is very interested in the relationships between form and siting to create buildings that are intrinsically efficient and environmentally responsive.
Hannah is also Vice President of Operations for Design Integration Group, an ecological design and construction company, as well as the Program Coordinator for Wright Organic Resource Center, a not-for-profit project providing social and environmental education programs, which both operate out of the same studio spaces as ELWA. Along with her partner, Kevin Parkhurst, Hannah has been working closely with Mr. Wright towards the evolution of the principles and aesthetics of Organic Architecture with the influence of the insights and concepts of ecological design and our contemporary understanding of social and environmental issues. Ms. Wear is currently focused on deepening her understanding of the design and architecture profession and striving to stay informed on the leading trends in environmentally responsible technologies.
Kevin coordinates the design process of projects within the Studio and is a Project Manager with an extensive background in group decision making processes, environmental planning and policy development and ecological design. He has an interest in integrating infrastructure and mechanical systems into the design concept to enhance and harmonize with the design. He is especially interested in master planning for projects with an overall and holistic approach in responding to the needs of the client, aspects of the particular site, and integration of the building with the landscape. Kevin is a licensed contractor and has hands on experience with solar electric and wind power generation systems. In past projects he has been involved in, Kevin has worked to minimize environmental impacts in construction and post construction occupancy.
Kevin is Executive Director of Wright Organic Resource Center, a not-for-profit project providing social and environmental education programs based in a rustic 24 acre site in the Santa Monica Mountains above Malibu, California. Kevin is also President of Design Integration Group, an ecological design and construction company with an alternative energy arm operating as Malibu Solar with projects primarily in the Santa Monica Mountains region. Along with his wife, Hannah Wear, Kevin has been working closely with Mr. Wright towards the evolution of Organic Architecture with the influence of the insights and concepts of ecological design and our contemporary understanding of social and environmental issues. Kevin has been focused on furthering his practical knowledge of green materials and construction methods and the integration of passive and active mechanical systems to lessen the negative impacts of our developments.View Kevin's chronology of experience
