Kenwood Inn


These buildings were among the first in the United States to employ the Rastra insulated concrete forming system, in which recycled Styrofoam is formed into 10-inch-thick insulating blocks that act as molds for structural concrete. The blocks are left in place, where they create a strong, thick, well-insulated exterior wall. We then plastered the walls inside and outside, producing the look and texture of the Old World masonry buildings that inspired the Inn's original architecture.
