Kurt Rathmann, NCARB, will talk about green building, both residential and commercial entitled “Deep Green Design-Build”.  Deep Green Design-Build reviews budget-conscious residential new construction projects designed and built by Kurt Rathmann between 1995 and 2015.  “Deep Green” refers to the integration of sustainable materials and methods that dive deeper than conventional green building.  Topics will focus on place-based design, micro climate response, embodied energy, cradle-to-cradle construction, super-insulated envelopes, passive heating and cooling, domestic rainwater collection, and day-lighting.     Attendees will gain a better grasp on how green principles become an inseparable part of the architectural design process at the site, building, and component scales, creating homes that are a good fit for their owners and our environment.

While completing a graduate degree in Architecture at the University of Idaho, Kurt Rathmann’s interest in bioregionalism and climate-responsive design spawned an entrepreneurial vision. Between 1995 and 2015 Kurt’s design and construction businesses served the Inland Northwest as 3 Little Pigs Design-Build in Moscow followed by Rathmann Design, Inc. and 3LP Builders, Inc. in Spokane.

Kurt is an Architect licensed in Idaho and Washington, certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards, and is currently employed by DKMullin Architects based in Moscow, Idaho.
