Bay Beach Passive House
4423 Erie Rd, Ridgeway, ON
Bay Beach PH was designed as a home for a lovely couple looking to retire and ensure low energy costs on a fixed income. It was determined early on that the design and construction would target Passive House Certification, be all electric (with the exception of an exterior bbq) and be solar ready. The clients also wanted to connect the design to the local agricultural heritage, which drove the form, materiality and aesthetics of the building as a modernized "barn". ph43 Architecture designed the Bay Beach PH to be a Passive House level home for ageing in place with all main spaces located on the ground floor. The building was constructed by evolve builders using a pre-fabricated envelope built and installed by Lowry Building Construction. The clients just started living in the home, and to sum up their experience so far "It's a fun house to live in!"
