PASSIVE HOUSE, ANNAPOLIS
Chesapeake Passive House will be teaming up with INDRAlogic for the Passive House Annapolis project.
The single-family residence will be situated in a forest conservation easement and will aim to be both Passive House Certified and watershed neutral. This project will employ timber milled from the site and will seek to reduce all environmental impacts in this environmentally sensitive Chesapeake Bay region.
Chesapeake Passive House will be working with Architect Miche Booz of Brookeville, MD to design a Passive House residence in Clarksville, MD.
The project will be a single family residence in an established neighborhood. The site has excellent solar exposure (a first for us and a welcome feature of this project) and will be designed to meet Passive House certification.
CHESAPEAKE PASSIVE HOUSE collaboration with AHMANN ARCHITECTS on a renovation of a 1970′s end unit town house in Potomac, MD is being designed with the intention of becoming the first residence in Montgomery County to meet the Passive House Retrofit Standard. In addition to the Passive House goal, the project is being designed with Universal Design concepts.
Michael Hindle, CPCH in collaboration with Brennan+Company Architects on an addition of a 1980 single family home in Lutherville, Maryland. This home did not aim to achieve Passive House Certification, however Passive House design principles and techniques were incorporated into the new wall construction of the addition. A top course of aerated autoclaved concrete (AAC), a cork expansion joint, staggered stud walls with insulated sheathing, sub-slab insulation and external foundation insulation, were used to dramatically reduce the thermal bridging at the wall to foundation junction. This was particularly important due to the radiant floor heating in the addition.
