|EPIPHYTE LIVING ROOFS|
Honor the Land. Celebrate Life. Five words that are the guiding principles
of our work: designs that capture the spirit of a place expressed through architecture. We compose places rooted in the land, where native ecosystems and
climate are celebrated, and surprise and delight await. Tormod Hellwig, llc designs projects from resorts that present the pleasures and wisdom of nature;
to engaging retail and mixed use complexes; interpretive and cultural centers that tell a compelling story; and campuses and buildings with a depth of
encoded cultural meaning.The Pacific Northwest office of Tormod Hellwig, llc is located in the forests of the Olympic peninsula. Here we are experimenting
with native forest landscaping and epiphyte green roofs that require no soil and no drainage systems. A southwest office is planned for the Sonoran desert
to be sheltered by the earth and powered by the sun.
