Jotte Seghers, who some of you might have met at our earlier Meetups, will be coming over from Belgium to present a variety of PH project that he and his colleagues at BURO II & ARCHI+I worked on that side of the Atlantic.

  • A project of 24 PH apartments currently under construction
  • A Passive neighborhood with houses and apartments in the design phase
  • A Passive School delivered in 2006 and some individual Passive Houses.

Expect explanation of the design phase decisions, construction details, and a lot of info on used construction materials.

The event will begin with a 15-20 minute introduction to the passive house concept for those new to the topic by New York Passive House - we will emphasize PH insulation methods in this intro. This PH 101 will begin at 6:30 pm and Jotte will begin at 7:00 pm. A Q&A will follow.

    Very Informative and I really enjoyed our guest speaker. I liked the hand drawing of the 3 homes, 19th century, 20th and 21st century passive house(back to basics), and found it ironic how complex some of the systems were in the two projects that were presented. I would definitely enjoy a drink afterwards to discuss and socialize with other members and our hosts.

    Very informative, but ran a little long. I had to leave before the discussion had a chance to get going. Maybe drinks after the event next time?

    Very informative and intriguing presentation - Jotte is extremely knowledgeable and engaging - I would be interested in a follow-up discussion of his ideas about "Passive-Massive" construction techniques as a method of designing more durable buildings that avoid vulnerable EIFS systems.

    I tink it was good. Language was a bit of an issue. I would have liked a bit more clarification on the various techniques used to prevent thermal bridging.
