PARK SLOPE PASSIVE HOUSE

This three family home was in really rough shape. Not only was the facade falling apart, but all detail was stripped bare on the interior, the basement was flooding, and the top floor had fire damage. The building is being reborn - repairing the facade and rebuilding the interior with a small extension to bring in more light and take advantage of the yard and views.

We designed the building to meet passive house standards, with energy efficient windows and doors, increased insulation in the roof, walls and cellar, adding an ERV, air sealing, and using special thermal-bridge free connections in the envelope.
