Having two below grade levels including habitable space below garage, made us to look for something extraordinary for The Joyous Residence. After evaluating all different options for structural system, we chose using per-stressed concrete slab in combination with composite beam . These per-stressed concrete slabs can carry most of usual point-loads in residential buildings and provides flexibility in architectural design by eliminating unnecessary load bearing elements.
We are so lucky that our career is absolutely aligned with our passion. We "work for money but design for love". Last week when we were working on final touch-ups of Joyous Residence's elevations, we realized again that how joy full is our job to create something from scratch and develop it to a Joyous living space. When we design a project we already live in that and we can feel the seance of space before it's even existing. Project Page #modernhouse #Burton #Foresthill
