West - Passive

In Seattle, our client wants to catch the sun in each room when it makes an appearance in an often overcast sky. The weather is mild and the home must have a relationship with the outdoors to the indoors as seamless as possible. The client's plot of land is located on a hill in the Green Lake section of Seattle and we are working to maximize the views of the lake and the Olympic Mountains beyond. 

This home is being designed as Passive House and in collaboration with our design/build Passive House colleagues based in Olympia, Washington. The 3d daylighting studies and wood study model shown here are some of FNA's contribution to the design process.
