Project: Solebury Passive
Location: Solebury, PA
Locate on a beautiful southern facing sloped site near the Nakashima Furniture works in Bucks County.
The owners for this project have set as their overwhelming top priority maximizing renewable energy and minimizing the energy load of the house. The buildings massing is set up for maximum solar gain from the south with minimal glazing to the north and west. Deep overhangs are designed to protect against overheating in the summer.
We have removed concrete from the foundation slab and are working to select exterior cladding products for durability and low embodied carbon content.
The house is planned to acheive PHIUS + Source Zero
