East York Passive Home   Bungalow Addition and Renovation   Our clients asked us to design an extensive renovation and second floor addition to their existing bungalow, which the family had outgrown. While maintaining only some basement walls, the goals of the new home were to maximize natural light, utilize natural ventilation through stack effect, and incorporate principles of Feng Shui to create a healthy, naturally lit, open concept design. Strategies for this home included a highly insulated and airtight exterior building envelope, new in-floor radiant heating, solar-ready hardware for future solar hot-water and solar photovoltaic systems, durable materials including Galvalume roofing, and operable clerestory windows. The result is a light-filled, coherent home with clean lines and beautiful natural materials that reduces its energy demand while increasing health and happiness of the homeowners.
