ChrDAUER Architects serves clients who seek finely detailed, environmentally responsive and responsible buildings.
Our office has lead five green/sustainably-designed and resourced projects as of the spring of 2013.
Atherton, CA completed 11/2007
1950’s home remodel and addition.
Rather than razing their existing home on a large suburban lot, our clients decided to remodel and strategically expand. Utilizing sustainably resourced materials and methods throughout, the house is thoroughly reconfigured and modernized for a family of four. From active and passive hvac systems to reclaimed wood ceilings, this project is responsibly comfortable.
San Francisco, CA, completed 3/2009
Post 1906 earthquake historic home comprehensive remodel.
Along one of the Mission District’s busiest sidewalks, an Edwardian townhouse is restored and expanded with 2 substantial yet stealthy additions. Peeking out above the restored front façade, a modern 3rd story bedroom level hints at the redesigned rear living spaces within. New meets old via integrated natural lighting, efficient technologies, restored and repurposed material strategies “wasting and wanting for not”.
Third: San Mateo, CA completed 1/2011
Craftsman historic home renovation, remodel, "house within a house" high performance internal addition.
Energy/resource use analysis and participation in the ACI 1000 Home Challenge with goal to reduce metered energy use by at least 75%.
Fourth: San Francisco, CA completed 5/2012
Italianate Victorian home comprehensive remodel.
The original 1,000 sq ft home is transformed and doubled in area, WITHIN its original footprint. A complete re-engineering of the 1st story (allowing 3 new bedrooms and a bath), the connection of 2nd floor public spaces, and the introduction of a new internal stair, maximize the potential of this otherwise modest house.
Fifth: San Francisco, CA under construction
LEED-CI Gold 30,000 sqft. commercial tenant improvement
A three story reinforced concrete building, is converted into office, prototype laboratory, and presentation/meeting space for an international consumer products design-development company. Portions of the base building are being re-designed, and re-engineered, to maximize employee comfort and safety, accommodate large scale prototyping equipment, and to establish a state-of-the-art research, presentation, and training workspace.
As the design principal and primary client contact, Christian Dauer AIA, NCARB, LEEDap (New Construction), is committed to and experienced in integrating sustainable design ideas and technologies into every project.
