After many great years practicing traditional architecture in and around New York City I’m excited to be an active part in promoting a fundamental transition in American design and construction toward low energy/high comfort building, that responsibly addresses the climate crisis we face, through my partnership in the new venture: 475 High Performance Building Supply (475).
475 is bringing to the American marketplace materials, knowledge and professional community building critical to realizing high-performance and Passive House level construction. Air sealing products by Pro Clima, a decentralized ventilation system by Lunos, and triple-pane skylights by Fakro and more are available through 475. In addition, the 475 blog is a growing resource for building science and product information.
So while I’ll certainly miss the best parts of practicing architecture, I look forward to working with many more committed professionals and clients, toward making a more healthy, comfortable and efficient future. I hope to speak with you soon.
