Boxhouse: It's a Renovation

You would never know to look at it, but this is a 1948 vintage 900 square foot house in Boulder, Colorado, reclad in a plywood rainscreen, with an addition made from a custom prefabricated compressed straw panel wall system that was assembled in four hours, that houses a new kitchen, bedroom and bath. Designer Rob Pyatt says

"I firmly believe that we can achieve sustainability in the built environment through adaptive reuse, recycling and construction efficiency, and in this way, we can improve the quality of life in our communities and provide affordable, healthy and inspired environments."
