skidmore passivhaus

November 15, 2013

there’s quite a bit of excitement in the air surrounding our skidmore passivhaus.  in addition to officially receiving passivhaus certification (PHIUS +), the house was awarded an earth advantage platinum rating and energy star northwest certified.

back in early october the house was featured on the aia portland’s design matters tour of exceptional homes, and was the only passivhaus on the tour.

a few weeks ago a 4.32kW PV system was installed on the upper roof which is expected to help the house approach net zero energy use.

inhabitat just featured the house on their website, and portland monthly magazine was on site this week to photograph the house for an upcoming issue.

we’re also excited to present a handful of new photos completed by local architectural photographer jeremy bittermann.
