International Open Passive House Days - Omega Institute, Rhinebeck, NY

Women's Institute Offices - Omega Institute for Holistic Studies

This addition to an Administration Building is a Certified Passive House, only the second in New York State, and the first commercial Passive House in New York. The building, which houses the Women's Institute, is designed and engineered for very low energy use, for expected savings of 80% as compared to a conventionally built structure. This is accomplished through rigorous analysis of energy losses and gains, and management of those with a super-insulated building envelope, airtight construction, and high-efficiency building systems.

 

In addition to this open house at Omega, 5 Passive Houses will be open in Brooklyn (renovations, retrofits and new construction includings a large multifamily building) and a number outside of the city (on Saturday or Sunday).

Other locations are:

- Brooklyn, NY

- Westport, CT

- Orient Point, Long Island

- Mamaroneck, NY

- Philadelphia, PA


Please go to the event page on nypassivehouse.org for details about the open houses.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
