Project Description

For a family passionate about their role in reducing Climate Change, targetting Passive House Plus only made sense! The skewed and significantly sloped lot resulted in a siting of the home that poses some challenges in designing solutions to meet the stringent PH+ standard, to maintain the amazing views to the northwest of a lovely conservation area. The advantage in maintaining site slopes and drainage, is that the home has a lower level walkout to the backyard. The home looks to connect the inside to the outside through expansive glazing in the Great Room, providing unobstructed views to the conservation lands beyond. This openness also reflects the social attitude of the clients, who entertain on a regular basis and need large open spaces for social gatherings.
