Telios Design Philosophy


Telios Environmental is a company dedicated to designing and building beautiful environmentally conscious spaces. Each project is approached individually and examined from both the design and building perspectives improving the quality and economy of both aspects of development. We create intelligent designs which incorporate the most energy and resource efficient systems and eco-friendly and sustainable materials. We strive to make every space a healthy, efficient, long lasting, harmonious environment that not only nourishes the spirit but contributes to creating a more sustainable world.

Anticipatory Design Science
We use the ideas of anticipatory design science or design with an eye to consequences. Pioneered by R. Buckminster Fuller the implementation of a multifaceted informed approach can lead to the most efficient and elegant solutions to design.

Eco-friendly Materials
We stay current on all of the most eco-friendly materials available. Happily as the design and building industry shifts toward sustainable building practices there are a greater plethora of choices. We can consult our clients on the availability and benefits of these materials.


Energy Efficient Systems
We incorporate the most energy efficient systems available. Solar, wind, and geothermal can be utilized for energy production. We keep a current catalog of the most energy efficient appliances, CFL and LED lighting and water saving systems available.

Healthy Living
A home should be an environment that fosters good health and creativity. Our designs always incorporate plenty of natural light and fresh air ventilation. We choose building materials that are non off gassing and paints and finishes that have low or no volatile organic compounds.
