Blast From the Past

A few weeks back we had another edition of our office show-and-tell, 3x6x9. This time we asked some vetern LF’ers to present their favorite Lake Flato projects from the early years. We heard a lot of great stories about clients, contractors and office antics. We learned about some projects that were not only formative for the trajectory of the firm but also individual colleagues (for example, Laura did a study of the Carraro house in grad school, which she explained transformed how she conceived of the single family home).

Patrick is the type of person who elevates everyone around him. Not only is he a great teammate at work — extremely dependable and thorough, with enough positive energy to rub off on the whole team — but he is also just a wonderful human being. Click to Read More

The Josey Pavilion, our first project seeking Living Building Challenge certification, began its operational phase on October 1st and things are looking good. During the month of October, Josey Consumed 139 kWh of electricity and generated 358 kWh. This is net positive usage of 219 kWh, meaning that 219 kWh of energy were sent back into the grid. Josey generated about 25% less energy than predicted, which is a little disconcerting but it also used less than half the energy that we had anticipated. A few more months like this and we should be in the clear.   Click to Read More
