Net Zero Energy House 01
The project is a compact yet livable net zero energy house, meant to advance typical notions of what a house could be without any radical departure from the typology. The goals of the project are to:
• Provide an efficient, flexible, and open interior, resulting in a compact dwelling that still offers all
the amenities of a larger home. This will reduce the construction costs of the house and the energy
used to operate it.
• Use efficient mechanical systems that reduce annual energy consumption while providing superior
thermal comfort. The floor plan should also allow efficient distribution to reduce the spatial allocation
and first costs for piping and duct runs.
• Use a construction system that will minimize complexity, enable a quick and cost effective assembly,
and provide a tight, energy efficient envelope.
