WHERE: PARK SLOPE, BROOKLYN
SIZE: 3500 SQ FT
STATUS: DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
A three generation Brooklyn family looking to revamp of their brownstone through the most energy efficient and budget friendly means, decided to convert their home into a passive house. This 3-story brownstone will receive a gut renovation, a full story addition and a rear extension with a modern rear façade. All construction will follow passive house standards, which consists of a continuous thermal seal, controlled indoor air quality and stable indoor temperature year-round to eliminate the need for heating or cooling.
The current design also includes two outdoor terraces and a custom kitchen, including environmentally friendly appliances, minimalist inspired finishes and products throughout, to accommodate this growing family for years to come. This project is anticipated for completion in spring 2018.
