Green Builder – Passive Townhomes Cluster on Infill Site

Green Builder celebrated our Passive House-constructed View Haus 5 townhomes, the first of their kind in Seattle.

“We know that buildings are the number one consumer of energy in the world, and we know how to change that, but that’s not even what is so amazing about Passive House construction,” says Ritchie. “For me and my family, it’s an overall improvement in our health and happiness – living comfortably and being mindful of how comfortable it is to sit in front of windows in the middle of winter and not feel an ounce of cold, drafty air.”

The modern designed units are a mix of three-story two bedroom/two bathroom and three bedroom/two bathroom townhomes ranging from 1,100 to 1,700 square feet. Unlike many townhomes, the five units that make up View Haus 5 are individually designed, rather than mirror image cookie cutter dwellings.”
