Passive House is the Future

As architects we necessarily work at the intersection of art, engineering and commerce.  It is in the embrace, negotiation and ultimate surmounting of constraints that our creativity is best kindled and directed.

It’s not often that we see the primary forces that influence our work realign to point so clearly at a more advanced way of thinking about the world and our ability to change it for the better, but we’re convinced that this is one of those moments.

The studio’s recent adoption of Passive House principles represents an evolution of our architectural design paradigm, extending our concern for modular and systems-based design to encompass quantifiable energy efficiency, carbon reduction and occupant comfort.
