Features

  • Site: 80 acre property with multiple buildings for health retreat.
  • Design: Transformative renovation of existing ranch house to create common and specialized spaces for a health retreat. Reuse of existing house significantly reduced cost and waste for this phase of the project. Measures were taken to ensure that structure could install PV system in the future and tie into larger site rainwater collection system.
  • Lighting: Daylighting is utilized – some windows were added or enlarged to accomplish this; Interior lighting is a mix of fluorescent and LED lighting; Exterior lighting design minimizes light pollution.
  • Landscape: Hardscapes were added under existing oak trees to maximize outdoor spaces.
  • Project Team: Thoughtcrib, Inc.: Eric S. Brown, LEED AP (design); Foursquare Builders, Wes Wigginton, LEED AP, GMB (general contractor); HA Architecture, Jamie Crawley, AIA, LEED AP BD+C and Eric S. Brown, LEED AP (Construction Administration)
