Here is a video of the finished house.
We are working with Joshua Fletcher of Terrace15, Eric Baldwin of Baldwin West, Yuval Sofer of YSbuilt on a micro housing project in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle. Our working title is Loft|Haus, we are working with Peter Reppe of Solarc Engineering on Passive Haus certification and working towards a total of net zero energy use. We are very excited to be working on a project that has an intense interest in energy. This chart shows the temperature inside of one our the west facing units during the warmest months of the year. There are many systems we are working to integrate into the project and are thrilled with the enthusiasm of the whole team.
Congrats to The Aragona team they have been nominated as semifinalists for Best New Restaurant for The 2014 James Beard Foundation Award.
So when we finally got to fabricating a canopy for a project we found that we seemingly had over engineered it. So thanks to Aaron Pambianco for consulting his trusty structural bible we came up with a testing solution as follows.
Load up one of the canopies with 580lbs of steel and test it’s deflection against an unloaded canopy, with only a 1/4″ of deflection we now don’t have to weld on 3″ flat bar to the top of the canopy.
We are helping Jason Stratton and Carrie Mashaney on their new Restaurant Aragona, next to the porte cochere of the Four Seasons Hotel and just across the street from the Seattle Art Museum at 96 Union. We are very excited about the new murals from Kate Jessup and chairs and lighting from Erich Grinder. Big ups to Dolan Construction for making it happen.
