American Passive House Developments

by Mary James

“Passive House, a method of building that traces its roots to American pioneers such as Amory Lovins, is the world’s leading energy efficiency standard for buildings. It applies to all building types, allowing people to save energy in their homes and workplaces without sacrificing comfort. Now, Mary James, a leading voice in the American Passive House movement, lucidly articulates that Passive House is not just a residential phenomenon by showcasing a sampling of intriguing current projects including multifamily developments, commercial kitchens, and brownstone renovations.”
