Awesome 2015. Supercharged 2016.

Thanks to everyone for making 2015 such an incredible year for Reset Studios. With a new company record of a whopping 305,000 square feet that received design attention from the various studios last year, it really feels like the foundation is being set for a complete evolution of the company. […]

Material Sensibility: Jewel Box Villa

The architects maximized the use of the long and narrow lot by splitting the building’s main volume into different levels with an outer shell structure topped with a hipped roof. Its shell takes up most of the heat-gain during the hottest hours of the day, while the transparent western facade […]

Long Residence – Dewey, Arizona

This small retirement home was designed with systems, materials and processes to allow the owners to self-perform almost all of the work. Perhaps the most environmentally sensitive project RESET has completed to date, the project exceeds the current federal energy mandates by 212%.  It achieves this the by the use […]

Self-serving, I know…

2011 – The (new) Manifesto

Energy Efficient PreFab: Huf House

From the Inhabitat blog, this is a great prefab system now being represented out of Cleveland, OH. I’m interested to see what the prices per square foot are, but the system really allows some beautiful spaces. German company HUF HAUS is offering gorgeous green houses to the masses by bringing Bauhaus […]

Green Building – Coolidge, AZ

Here is an update on an exciting project in Coolidge, Arizona. Coolidge is a town of about 12,000 people 50 miles south of Phoenix. I’m working with a landowner there to develop about 60 acres into about 48 new 1 AC home sites. The houses will take on the rural […]

Airstream Mobile Office

These guys have it right. 100%. Right down to the Balvenie in the cabinet. Love the pics, and the work looks really nice, too. The company is a design and branding effort called One Fast Buffalo, and I am pretty bummed that they have such a very cool mobile office, […]
