3. High Performance Home: Net-Zero New Construction

This new home melds compact design with expansive ideas of sustainability. The owner-designer envisioned a three-level home that meets his family's needs while attaining Passive House energy conservation standards. Large exterior doors, movable walls, and rolling doors expand and re-configure space based on needs and weather. The reverse floor plan provides bike storage, master bedroom, office, and guest space at street level. Upstairs, the main living spaces are open to sweeping city views and extended living on a broad, wraparound deck.  


  • 1,548 sq. ft. of living space
