studioWEBSTER specializes in deep energy retrofits for existing residential buildings, including renovations and additions. I've done a lot of work in old houses, and I love that they're difficult, surprising, delightful, charming things. We need to work hard to bring them up to modern standards of efficiency to fend off the worst of climate change. My renovation projects focus on preserving character while improving functionality, reducing energy, and eliminating fossil fuel combustion.
Energy-Efficient New Homes
My specialty is in high-performance design and climate-friendly construction. To you, this means comfort, durability, a healthy indoor environment, and a home that aligns with your values. With a new home, we have an opportunity to go all the way to create a carbon-storing, energy-saving, clean, healthy powerhouse. I look to Passive House (PHIUS) and Living Futures (ILFI) to help me implement the best practices in robust resilient design.
Multi-Family Passive House
Multi-family housing is inherently more energy-efficient than detached single-family housing, and designing and building to Passive House standards exponentially improves the performance of a building. Combining both strategies catapults us into next-level design to create environmentally-friendly housing that benefits its inhabitants as well as our planet. We are currently seeking collaboration opportunities for multi-family Passive House projects.
studioWEBSTER's work is located within a 2-hour radius of Amherst, MA with particular emphasis on the Pioneer Valley (Northampton, Amherst, Greenfield), as well as Brattleboro, VT and Keene, NH.
