Architect: Nathan Good Architects
Team: Plasterers Local 82; Western Materials; Dryvit Systems
The winery residence is a single-family home located in the wine country of the Willamette River Valley of Oregon. The project involved a recladding of the existing home overlooking local vineyards. The project design team had one of Oregon’s award-winning architects, Nathan Good Architects. Good and his team have been leaders in sustainable design and green building practices for over 40 years.
The homeowners reached out to the team at Western Partitions for its advice on options to increase durability and insulation levels using a seamless exterior wall system. The Western Partitions team recommended and installed a state-of-the-art Dryvit Outsulation system. The new exterior system added a fresh air/water-resistive barrier along with a layer of continuous exterior insulation.
The newly installed system met performance goals to increase durability and energy efficiency. During the cold weather months, the continuous insulation keeps heat inside the home longer, and during the summer cooling season it keeps heat out. The Dryvit system also enabled Western Partitions to achieve the design goal of a seamless wall system with no exposed control joints. The beautiful new exterior system will provide years of comfort and energy savings.
