Charles Weston and Lesley Miles.

Weston Miles Architects, Inc. has been named a California Air Resources Board, Cool California Small Business of the Year. Weston Miles Architects earned this honor for its ongoing practice of integrating energy efficiency and education into its own offices and operations – as well as for its efforts on behalf of clients.
Weston Miles Architects was lauded for its LEED Gold headquarters – an old granary that the firm transformed into a state-of-the-art multi-unit office building.
Photovoltaic panels installed on the roof of the Granary saved approximately $9,000 in energy costs in 2011. A small organic orchard provides fruits and herbs for the seasonal dishes served at Odeum, a restaurant located in the building. Weston Miles Architects conducts tours of the Granary to educate the community about sustainability.
In 2011 Weston Miles Architects was named Environmental Business of the Year by the Santa Clara League of Conservation Voters.
