Green Preservation
Builder: Scott Reardon, Reardon Custom Homes
Architect: Juana Gómez, Lawrence and Gómez Architects
The greenest building is the one that already exists. Our restoration and addition of the mid-
century modern T. Maslin House in Boulder illustrates the balance between sustainability and
preservation. The remodel illustrates that Green and Historic can coexist.
True to the aesthetics and technology of 1953, the original house by Hoby Wagener has a solid
base of local sandstone topped by a very light, thin roof over transom glass. With only the cavity
between 2x6 rafters available for insulation, we devised a detail of tapered roof insulation and
closed cell foam to achieve an R-50.
The restoration has a very low carbon footprint. The house exceeds the IECC by 40%. The
renovation includes reuse of 90% of the envelope and structure, enhanced daylighting, custom
low U-value transom replicas, radiant in-floor heat, improved solar access, hydronic capability,
and natural ventilation and cooling.
