PASSIVE HOUSE tURNaround

Details:

LOCATION Brooklyn, NY

SIZE: 3,280 SQ FT

COMPLETION: 2015

Description:

The goal for this project was to bring the existing masonry building up to Passive House Standards. Advantages of achieving this included reduced energy costs, increased thermal comfort and a smaller carbon footprint. An addition was added onto the north end of the building and a complete renovation from the cellar to the roof was conducted. Interior spaces were expanded by removing partitions. Living space was increased by making use of the previously abandoned cellar. Outdoor spaces were created through incorporation of a terrace and balcony.
