Passive House BKLYN

Energy Revolution in a Brooklyn Townhome

Passive House BKLYN II

Passive House BKLYN II is a 5-story, 1890’s limestone in the heart of Park Slope, Brooklyn. The 4-family house is configured with an owner’s duplex and three floor-through apartments.  The building dimensions are 20′ x 60′ and the lot size is 20′ x 100′. The house had previously been stripped of any significant or original details and is not landmarked, allowing more freedom towards a modern interior design. The entire house is being built to Passive House Standards, but the top 3 floors are only being partially renovated – creating special challenges for air sealing.
