“We love the play on the word Eco – immediately conveying an ethos, while having many facets worthy of endless exploration. With Shepherd Eco, we wanted to delve beyond mere conservation to the core values that drive this spirit of sustainability. That, inevitably, brought us back to humanity… community… crafting a brand that embodies the world we seek and using our platform to inspire others to carry forth this ethos.”
Christine Menedis and Naveen Trehan | co-Founders
Shepherd Eco finds its roots in the deeply intertwined concepts of sustainability and humanity – the dual heartbeats that drive these Eco-systems – thriving, dynamic communities weaving residents, guests, locals, and nature into a rich, fulfilling experience.
Sustainability in all forms
is core to what we do.
We honor this ethos through strategies for reducing plastic and water usage. Sustainability and resiliency elements are located where they can be visible to the public, highlighting their growing importance.
From the architectural materials we build with to the food we serve our patrons, we seek recycled materials and locally-sourced goods wherever possible.
In every Eco community we build, you’ll find hydroponic farming – not just on the rooftops, fueled by our rainwater collection systems, but throughout the interiors of our hotels and residential buildings. So, lend a hand and reap the bounty.
Yes, we’re green. But with Eco, we take a broader view of sustainable design.
We believe that great design, like a great lady, should be timeless.
Actually, turns out, it’s the classic definition: a system that maintains its own viability by using techniques that allow for continual re-use.
We see sustainable design as the future of urban development – going beyond green construction to an understanding that a truly great building needs to be able to withstand the test of time – flexing and adapting to each ensuing generation that occupies it.
Sparking new pathways for the future of sustainable design
Approximately 40% of all materials in landfills come from conventional construction, renovation, and demolition. It’s time to rethink the entire process and create meaningful buildings that are capable of meeting the needs of local communities and shifting demographics.
Manufactured from recycled materials using green construction processes, Eco’s interior flex walls have better acoustical properties than drywall and beautiful, high-quality finishes created in collaboration with some of the world’s most accomplished interior designers.
Eco’s bespoke residential interiors allow for seamless transition, allowing you to craft the space that fits your lifestyle – from a loft to a more traditional 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom home.
Strategically placed Eco flex interiors within the hotel allow sales teams to always meet current demand needs and create one-of-a-kind experiential suites.
