10 Years of Passive House & NAPHN16

 

2016 marks the twenty-fifth year of Passive House internationally, and the tenth anniversary of the first certified Passive House building in North America. Designed in 2005 by TE Studio/ Intep partner Stephan Tanner, the Waldsee BioHaus was completed and certified in 2006, and has since become on of the beacons for sustainable architecture on the continent.

Stephan will be recognized at this year’s 2016 NAPHN Conference in New York City on June 13th and 14th for this achievement.
