Custom Vancouver Passive House PLUS
West Coast Modern Design
A green story by Marken Design + Consulting.
Vancouver's 1st Zero Emissions Building
Currently at building permit stage, Marken D+C has designed a west coast modern single family Passive House for a RS1 zoned property in East Vancouver.
With the new changes to RS1 zoned lots in Vancouver, property owners now have the opportunity to take advantage of the recently introduced Passive House incentives which include increased building height and FSR options.
For this project, our design team was able to maximize the building height achieving increased ceiling room and get a floor area exemption for the thicker and better insulated Passive House walls.
In additional, a 3.6Kw photovoltaic system will be installed to produce enough electricity to reduce the BC Hydro bill significantly aiming to achieve the new certified Passive House PLUS standard; the first in Canada.
It will also be Vancouver's 1st Zero Emissions Building meeting the recently ratified Zero Emissions Plan requirements supporting Vancouver's Greenest City 2020 Goal.
