Nabih Tahan, Architect
Nabih would like to share his experience in Passive House construction to assist anyone who feels that we can improve our systems so that we can reach our global goals of protecting our local environment and planet.
This home was retrofitted to meet the Passive House standards. Passive Houses eliminate air flow (or loss) through the building envelope reducing the energy needed for heating or cooling. These homes are called "Passive House" because passive heat inputs, such as solar intake and heat emissions of appliances and occupants, keep the building at comfortable indoor temperatures throughout the heating period making a conventional heating or cooling system unnecessary.
