Small Integrated Practice?


Wondering if you guys know of any California-based firms that are fairly small and young, and are an 'integrated' A/E practice focusing on sustainability?  

I realize I'm looking for a needle in a haystack - but I'm on the verge of getting my license (finally!) and this is ideally the type of practice I'd want to have.  Whether it's feasible to have a small scale integrated practice, I'm not sure; however I think there is huge opportunity to have a truly collaborative practice focusing on designing beautiful and functional net zero energy/water/waste buildings.  I know of a lot of sustainability consulting groups, but often times they are working *for* architects.

Take a look at Marmol Radziner they are an integrated practice. Integrated in some sense also means "not-small". Not sure if they focus on sustainability but they are definitely open to it, well according to their book (accidentally encountered their book at the library)

Thanks for the suggestion, Jose.  I have heard a lot of good things about Marmol Radziner and they certainly have a high quality of residential work.  I don't see much in the way of sustainability, but considering CA is targeting net zero energy for all new residential by 2020, I imagine it must be on their radar.
