Passive Pads is a series that shows Passive House from the homeowner's perspective. This week, we visit the home of NYC-based Passive House Architect and founder of Passive House Accelerator, Michael Ingui and his wife and home co-designer, Dayan Ingui. Join us as we explore the stunning features of this Brooklyn townhouse, from its sleek design to its high-tech energy-saving systems. We'll take you on a room-by-room tour, showing you how the passive house approach has been integrated into every aspect of the home's design.
