Discovery Channel's TV series features Passive House Design

October 09, 2020


Passive House has hit the small screen! Jodi and Brian Abbott share their story as owner-builders with the Discovery Chanel’s TV series, Building Off the Grid. AB Passive House is targeting Passive House Plus certification and utilizes low carbon and fire-resistant construction adapted for the wildland-urban interface. Designed by Hyperlocal Workshop, the project is informed by its rugged mountain environment. Its massing is informed as a response to the adjacent rock outcropping.

Watch here, with a cable subscription (Building Off the Grid, Colorado Cliff Home, Season 10, Episode 1).
