Geoffrey Warner is the founder of Alchemy, weeHouse, and an avid proponent of efficient housedesign. Alchemy concentrates on art and industry while maximizing the impact of modest budgets through creative construction technologies and celebrating a sense of “tightwad panache.” Alchemy’s completion of the first weeHouse in 2003, then just an inexpensive prefab cabin, gained international attention as a symbol of architectural optimism. Since then, Alchemy has widened its scope, developing the weeHouse as a prefabricated answer for cabins, houses, offices, rooftop studios, and multi-unit developments. Projects have been published in numerous national and international magazines, books, blogs,and cyberspace slots including: The New York Times, Dwell, The Wall Street Journal, Time,Wired, Interior Design, and Kiplinger’s along with MSN.com, CBS Marketwatch and The Huffington Post.
