7 November 2018 ArchitectureNow Editorial Desk: The eco-ethical house: part two

7 November 2018 by Jason Quinn

I’ve had the great pleasure of staying overnight in this Passive House with some friends. It was beautifully warm and quiet inside. Although it was cold outside that night one of the other guests slept in the window seat, no curtains and still warm and comfortable.

“Gardner House was my first passive house and the first certified passive house in the South Island; I learned so much from it.”

“What made me interested in passive house design was the amount of feedback I received from clients about the amount of energy they required to keep themselves comfortable; I think that is unacceptable.”

“The challenge is to make energy-efficient buildings that are comfortable to live in, and attractive and architecturally notable.”
