We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.

--Aldo Leopold

With LEED certification and experience with energy conscious design that extends back to the seventies, CPLA Architects is committed to an architecture that enhances a sense of place, and provides beauty and comfort as well as function. Sensitivity to scale and the proper siting of structures has always formed the foundation of our work and the use of green methods and materials is a simple extension of our typical practices.

We believe that good buildings play a crucial role in the health and vibrancy of a neighborhood and region and we are committed to the highest standards of responsible design and environmental stewardship. As a firm with more than 120 years of history in the Hudson Valley, we take pride in our contribution to the physical fabric of our community.

But now, says the Once-ler, Now that you’re here, the word of the Lorax seems perfectly clear. UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”

--Dr. Suess
