Portland Passive House

In Situ Architecture have completed a new Passive House that demonstrates how simple forms and beautiful material pallets can  result in an energy efficient and joyful home!  This project takes a different approach to shading.  Rather that incorporating expensive overhangs, check out the trio of images that show how external blinds can be used to keep out unwanted heat in the summer.
