Project Statement by Julie Moskovitz, Fabrica 718
This Passive House retrofit project will add a super envelope of insulation to the existing brownstone that will reduce energy usage by at least 80%. A penthouse addition at the roof will add a tilted and angled standing seam roof with solar thermal and solar photovoltaics. A roof terrace and rear yard will have planting areas that are irrigated from rain water collection containers. All lighting will be LED or fluorescent and we are aiming for gallery-like lighting conditions to highlight the young client's growing art collection. Stay tuned for project updates as construction commences soon.
