Zhang Sah Bainbridge – Passive House Martial Arts School
Philadelphia Pennsyslvania – 2010
passive house renovation
The new school design renovates an existing two story attached building and adds an accessible roof and wing with 4 new large studios spanning the existing parking lot, maintaining required parking and access. The building features solar collectors, south facing light monitors to enhance energy performance, and comfortable spaces with great indoor air quality to create an exceptional learning facility to support the school’s mission and stabilize future operational costs.
BluPath brought in a construction manager interested in Passive House construction techniques to prepare a schematic level project budget based on simple drawings and limited information.
