Stout and his team have used Infratech heaters in a variety of homes in the Los Angeles area.

Featured in Atomic Ranch, Dwell, Arch Daily and The Contemporist, Strand Design’s David Strand and his design partner David McKay have received a fair share of press for their distinctive synthesis of modern minimalist style and classic Midwestern agrarian structure. The Minneapolis, MN-based firm is also well regarded for their focus on environmental sustainability.
Both partners come from a construction background and began their career as architects, thus their work for Strand Design gives equal heft to solid design/build construction and architectural appeal. We spoke to them about about how they achieve their instantly recognizable design aesthetic, how sustainability plays into their designs, and why they choose Infratech heaters to keep homeowners cozy in cool Northern climates.
