The Hudson Passive Project

We participated in the building of the very first, certified passive house in New York by the Passive House Institute, US:

“The Hudson Passive Project is an energy conservation project, a prototype home-of-tomorrow that demonstrates the energy-saving potential of residential architecture. The house was designed by BarlisWedlick Architects LLC, built by Bill Stratton Building Company, and realized with the support of NYSERDA, the New York State Energy Research Development Authority through the High Performance Energy Challenge. Located in the beautiful Hudson Valley, about two hours north of New York City, The Hudson Passive Project is the first certified passive house in New York State and among the highest performing homes in the world.”
