Breaking the Mold of a Traditional Architect
Steve Baczek is keeping craft alive by pushing the envelope of modern building
A high-level understanding of construction, design, and energy efficiency is what makes Architect Steve Baczek a triple threat of modern residential building. After spending much of his career with the reputable Building Science Corp., Baczek struck out on his own. Despite being a one-man operation, he worked on an astounding 65 projects last year, ranging from traditionally styled remodels to ground-up net-zero and Passive House builds. Always lighthearted and boisterous, Steve is the kind of designer that every builder dreams of working with. He counters the typical day-to-day hurdles of working on the cutting edge of residential construction by providing builders with deeply detailed printed plans and making frequent site visits to give tradesmen walkthroughs of his intended assemblies, where he excels at making even an inexperienced team feel comfortable pushing the envelope of modern building.
