HIGH PERFORMANCE ENVIRONMENTALLY SENSITIVE SACRED SPACES
The professionals at Barrett Studio Architects always come up with the most appealing design and aesthetics while also achieving high performance structural integrity resulting in minimal maintenance and graceful aging. This is an understatement when it comes to the St. Walburga Abbey, which was featured in the New York Times and was the recipient of the Faith & Form Millennium Award for Religious Architecture.
As a subcontractor to GH Phipps, our ICF expert helped with various expansions to the facility. Phase Four resulted in a new high mountain plains two-story, 20-room living quarters, as well as an addition to the main Sanctuary. Our team installed 12” ICF wall systems from the footings to the roof. The ICF block we used contains recycled content (not virgin foam) enabling the building to boast R-50+ and a 4-hour fire ratings.
