Join the Building Energy Exchange for a presentation of the first Passive House certified project in a NYC landmark district. This recent retrofit led by Baxt Ingui Architects transformed a historic Brooklyn Heights brownstone into a Passive House certified gem, aligning the highest architectural preservation and environmental standards in a single project.

 

Key members, Michael Ingui of Baxt Ingui Architects and Kevin Brennan of Passive House Academy, will speak about the challenges encountered and creative solutions developed throughout the design, construction, and certification process. Other project team members will be on hand to discuss how their collaborative design process allowed them to refine a repeatable, systematic approach for applying the Passive House standard to masonry retrofit row house construction.
