Our fourth certified Passive House project, this one in Pebble Beach, California, breaks new ground in how high-performance homes with a low carbon footprint are designed and built.
This project explores use of the PHribbon—advanced software that measures embodied carbon—requisite for Passive House Plus certification, our original goal for this project. It calculates all the carbon contained in the systems and materials used in building a certified Passive House. It’s the first time this software is being used in a home construction project in California’s Central Coast region. And it inspired Passive House Accelerator’s interest in the project. The data we glean from this project will demonstrate what’s possible for the future of home building in this area.
When they visited our Countryside Passive House project, our Pebble Beach clients were quickly convinced that they wanted to live in a Passive House. The Pebble Beach project is a custom designed and built home that meets the needs and goals of the clients and is easy on the planet. It demonstrates that sustainable, energy-efficient, low-carbon-footprint design and building can apply to any type of construction. Explore the many benefits of living in a home built to Passive House standards. And read our blog on the Pebble Beach project.
Passive House Accelerator (PHA) is a collaborative platform for sharing innovation and thought leadership in Passive House design and construction. The website brings together practitioners, institutions, manufacturers and anyone concerned about buildings and climate change to dive into the details of creating better buildings. We are proud to have been invited to write an article on our certified Passive House project in Pebble Beach.
