CEO/Founder of Chambers Design Inc.
Chambers is a LEED AP whose sole focus is green projects because he says, “green projects are of higher quality, more healthy, have better options for style and design, and are good for the environment.”
Along with designing, Chambers tries to expand others’ understanding through the execution of a project by allowing them to work directly with green materials and educating them on the positive effects. Chambers believes clients save money on energy, water, and waste management by investing in green technology.
Chambers' first project was “Green Ground Zero” where he advocated for the rebuilding of the World Trade Center and surrounding areas to be environmentally responsible. From that experience, Chambers said he learned of people’s hunger for green. Chambers has also helped in the recovery of Indonesia after a tsunami. Chambers' most recent project was the development of the first ever independently owned LEED coffee house in Manhattan known as Birch Coffee (see slideshow). Everything from the lights to the espresso machine to the food they serve is an extension of the commitment to a green lifestyle. Chambers is still working on the project with the goal to reduce the environmental impact to zero.
Chambers' designs encompass the entire spectrum of green projects from energy audits to master planning. Chambers will be releasing a book in July entitled Urban Green: Architecture for the Future where he chronicles the exploration of various sized projects.
