Jacobson Residence on course for Passive House status

January 29th, 2016: Echo Park, Los Angeles

Our developing project for Stuart and Gretchen Jacobson is on course to be one of the first ever accredited Passive House projects in Los Angeles county.

The remodel of a 1920’s home takes the approach of reducing vertical wall glazing and maximizing geometrically beneficial sky lights that shade from summer sun but welcome winter warming solar gains.

The home has two houses with a courtyard garden in between and is due to start construction later in 2016.
