High-Performance Raft Slab

For many years, my company built conventional poured-concrete foundations, always aiming to be below frost depth (4 ft. in our area). But as we got into high-performance building and changed the way we built walls, our foundation system had to evolve. We started with double-stud walls about six years ago, and were able to pair those with 4-ft. frost walls and maintain a thermal break between the interior slab and the outer frost wall. But as we strived for even higher levels of performance, we began looking at exterior insulation and Larsen truss assemblies that necessitated a different type of…

The BS* + Beer Show: Off-Site Panelization

This episode of the BS* + Beer show features Alan Gibson, Ace McArelton, Steve Hessler, and Ilka Cassidy discussing off-site panelization. Alan, owner of GO Logic, launches the conversation by first describing his company’s panelized GO Home as its “bread and butter.” He says the design both reduces the architect’s fee for clients and promises a high-performance structure, which has made it a lucrative win-win.

Roman Holiday: A Top-Floor City Apartment That Channels Mediterranean Summer

When we first featured the work of Studio Strato back in 2018 (here) and 2019 (here), I was taken by their soft and muted but still unexpected use of color throughout rooms: pale greens and pinks, rust and grey-blue. Now, a few years later, they’ve taken the saturation up a notch. The latest of the studio’s transformed interiors was sent to us by Vincenzo Tattolo, one half, with Martino Fraschetti, of the Rome-based firm. Malaquite House has the distinct feel of an airy, brightly colored European summer house—even though it is a petite top-floor, two-bedroom apartment in the heart of…
