About this event:
The design seeks to respect the historic architecture while allowing the new interventions to be distinctly contemporary—all while significantly upgrading the performance of the home. The retrofit reduces the home’s energy use 68% from existing conditions and eliminates on-site combustion of fossil fuels. A 9.9kW solar array produces a majority of the home’s energy needs and with a battery backup system normally powers the home until about 1 am. The home also utilizes ultra-efficient plumbing fixtures and manages 65% of runoff from the roof on-site—demonstrating what is possible even in dense, historic urban areas.
