The New York hospitality industry is undergoing a green ''boom'' and one firm is particularly deeply involved in that trend.

Architecture and design firm Stonehill & Taylor is currently working on four LEED-certified hotel projects as it specializes in incorporating state-of-the-art technologies, materials, and techniques into hotel designs.

LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a rating system for eco-friendly design and practices developed by the U.S. Green Building Council.

"[There is a] tremendous momentum [towards green design solutions and] we have an opportunity to help shape New York''s new hospitality landscape and … have some impact on its environment," says Paul Taylor, the firm''s president.

Some of the green techniques the firm employs include self-sustaining rooftops, which have environmental benefits in addition to their aesthetic and social values; energy-saving mechanical systems; locally-made material and products made through sustainable processes as well as sophisticated recycling systems for water, waste, and energy.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for architects will grow dynamically at around 18 percent during 2006-16, and architects with knowledge and experience in those areas are expected to do particularly well.
