MODERN IS NOT SIMPLY AN AESTHETIC. IT IS A STATE OF MIND. MODERN IS A DYNAMIC PERSPECTIVE CONTINUALLY TUNING FORWARD THINKING WITH REFLECTION. MODERN DRAWS THE BEST FROM OUR PAST AND MARRIES IT WITH THE EDGE OF WHAT IS POSSIBLE.

 
 
 

SUSTAINABILITY IS MOST EFFECTIVE WHEN WE REVITALIZE WHAT WE ALREADY HAVE. WE HAVE ADVISED ON AND COLLABORATED WITH SOME OF THE MOST RIGOROUS PRESERVATION PROJECTS AND ORGANIZATIONS INCLUDING THE U.S. COMMISSION OF FINE ARTS, NEW YORK CITY'S LANDMARKS PRESERVATION COMMISSION AND FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT USONIAN HOMES. IN ALL WE BRING A UNIQUE APPROACH INFUSING HIGH PERFORMANCE BUILDING SOLUTIONS WHILE RESPECTING PRESERVATION CONSIDERATIONS.

 
 
 
 
 

BUILDING A GREAT HOME DOES NOT NEED TO BE COMPLICATED. INNOVATIVE BUILDING SYSTEMS AND ASSEMBLY METHODS ARE NOT EXCLUSIVELY RESERVED FOR THE FEW. WE HAVE TAKEN THE VERY BEST SOLUTIONS FROM OUR SUSTAINABLE, HIGH-PERFORMANCE PROJECTS AND CREATED A PREFAB DESIGN | BUILD SYSTEM FOR ANYONE SEEKING A MORE STREAMLINED, SUSTAINABLE AND EFFECTIVE WAY TO BUILD A HOME.

 
 
 
 
 

DESIGNING A HOME TO BE HEALTHY, COMFORTABLE AND RESILIENT IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE. GETTING TO NET ZERO DOES NOT REQUIRE A VAST SOLAR ARRAY. THE PASSIVE HOUSE BUILDING STANDARD OFFERS THE MOST DIRECT PATH TO HIGH COMFORT LIVING AND LOW ENERGY CONSUMPTION.

WE ARE A CERTIFIED PASSIVE HOUSE CONSULTANCY (CPHC) AND TRAINED FOR PASSIVE HOUSE BUILDING THROUGH THE PASSIVE HOUSE INSTITUTE U.S. (PHIUS). WHETHER SEEKING CERTIFICATION OR SIMPLY SMARTER DESIGN SOLUTIONS, CONSIDER A PASSIVE HOUSE APPROACH FOR YOUR PROJECT.

 
 
 
 
 

Y8 STUDIO IS A DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY COMPANY FOUNDED BY JORDAN WYATT. WE FOCUS ON HIGH PERFORMANCE ARCHITECTURE AND THE PASSIVE HOUSE BUILDING APPROACH. WITH EVERY PROJECT WE STRIVE TO CREATE SUSTAINABLE HOMES THAT WILL PERFORM AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL AND ENDURE BEYOND OUR TIME. HERE IS WHAT OUR CLIENTS AND COLLABORATORS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT WORKING WITH JORDAN:


"JORDAN HAS A VERY CREATIVE AND INVENTIVE PRACTICE, COMING UP WITH SOLUTIONS TO ANY ISSUES THAT CAME UP IN THE COURSE OF THE PROJECT. HE WAS RESPONSIBLE TO THE BOTTOM LINE, AND WE NEVER FELT AS THOUGH THE INTEGRITY OF HIS DESIGN WAS IN ANY WAY COMPROMISED BY LIMITATIONS OF TIME AND OR BUDGET."

- BECKY L.


"JORDAN WAS IN OUR EXPERIENCE A WONDERFULLY CAPABLE AND COMPETENT ARCHITECT. NO DETAIL WAS OVERLOOKED, EVERY DRAWING WAS DONE TO PERFECTION, EVERY MEETING WAS PERFECTLY COORDINATED AND HE WAS CONTINUALLY REACHABLE AND FOCUSED THROUGHOUT THE PROJECT. HE ALSO UNDERSTOOD AND WAS SENSITIVE TO PRESERVATION-RELATED NEEDS, AND HE WAS ABLE TO INTEGRATE THE NEW WITH THE OLD EFFECTIVELY. IT WAS A BIG HOUSE, AND WE WERE THRILLED WITH HOW EVERYTHING TURNED OUT. WE WOULDN'T HESITATE TO USE HIM AGAIN FOR ANYTHING."

- DAVID H.


"JORDAN WAS A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH. HIS CREATIVITY HELPED SHAPE OUR HOME TO OUR LIKING, AND HIS METICULOUSNESS AND CONSCIENTIOUSNESS HELPED TAKE THE STRESS OUT OF THE RENOVATION PROCESS. MOREOVER, WE HAVE BEEN INCREDIBLY HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS OF HIS WORK."

- AMY B.


"WE WERE FORTUNATE TO WORK WITH JORDAN ON THE EXTENSIVE RENOVATION OF OUR HOME... AND THEREAFTER ON A NUMBER OF SMALLER DESIGN PROJECTS. IN EVERY CASE, JORDAN MET AND EXCEEDED OUR VERY HIGH STANDARDS. AS AN ARCHITECT, HE IS CREATIVE, KNOWLEDGEABLE, AND THINKS OUTSIDE THE BOX. HE IS EXTREMELY GOOD AT TRANSLATING OUR IDEAS AND THOUGHTS INTO ACTUAL ARCHITECTURAL PLANS WITH ACCURATE SPECIFICATIONS. HE IS ALSO VERY GOOD AT DESIGN CONCEPTS THAT REFLECT NOT ONLY OUR CONTEMPORARY TASTE, BUT WHICH ARE ALSO IN KEEPING WITH THE HISTORIC CHARACTER OF OUR HOME. ALL IS IN HARMONY! AS A PROJECT MANAGER, HE IS DETAIL-ORIENTED, EFFICIENT, AND PUNCTUAL. AND AS A PARTNER IN A HIGHLY PERSONAL ENDEAVOR LIKE A HOME RENOVATION, HE IS HIGHLY TRUSTWORTHY AND A LOT OF FUN TO WORK WITH. THANKS TO JORDAN, OUR HOME IS BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE, AND UNIQUE. WE RECOMMEND HIM HIGHLY FOR JOBS BOTH LARGE AND SMALL."

- JORDAN T.


"WE APPRECIATED WORKING WITH JORDAN. FROM A CONTRACTOR'S PERSPECTIVE HE PROVED TO BE CLEAR IN HIS COMMUNICATION, RESPONSIVE IN ADDRESSING QUESTIONS THAT CAME UP AND PRACTICAL IN THE SOLUTIONS DEVELOPED."

-ROBERT T.
