The intent of the Demonstration Project, which began in 2018, has been to establish the feasibility of renovating existing brick masonry rowhouses to the Passive House standard. Using charrettes and workshops to engage the design community, participants have learned about opportunities to rethink how we design and build using above code standards as a guide for future development.
The resulting study will provide a detailed report of best practices, scheduled for release in 2019.
We invite you to participate! Whether you are an urban planner, architect, contractor, homeowner, educator, developer, or just interested in deep green design — we welcome your unique presence! Check out our website for more information and see our calendar for upcoming workshops and events!
