Green Renovation Vancouver
Turn a 50’s Bungalow into an Energy Efficient & Healthy Home
Eine grüne Geschichte von Marken Projects.
The greenest way to build is to improve the existing building stock, where possible.
In this case, we have a 50’s bungalow with basement in the Commercial Drive area of Vancouver with a sound structure to build on. We plan to add a half storey to maximize the allowable living area with the focus on improving the overall energy efficiency, using environmental friendly materials and ensuring a healthy indoor environment for this young family to enjoy. At the same time we will give it a new, modern look.
For us, it is common sense to plan along the Passive Design principles, which essentially means optimizing solar gain, optimizing insulation, ensuring an airtight envelope, installing a high performance heat recovery insulation system and making the house as energy efficient as possible.
Completed in late 2012, we will post pictures of the finished home shortly.
