San Antonio-based design firm Lake|Flato finally found a design-build partner in Katerra to refine and execute its Porch House concept, a system of modules with floor-to-ceiling windows and connecting porches that link the single-family structure to the outdoors. Over the years, Lake|Flato has tried various delivery methods for these houses, which typically range from 1,500 sf to 2,500 sf, including factory assembly components and site-built construction.
