Resilient House   Post Hurricane Sandy Low-Cost Passive House for New York   Winner of the American Institute of Architects (AIA)-sponsored international competition, Resilient House for Far Rockaway, New York has a layout which orients living spaces towards the sun, and minimizes interior partitions. Structurally insulated panels (SIPS) allow for a tightly-sealed and highly-insulated building envelope. Combined with a highly-efficient, managed ventilation system and upgraded windows, these design strategies achieve a projected 65% reduction in annual energy consumption. The house will be built by Friends of Rockaway according to FEMA regulations above the floodplain with a flood-proof foundation to ensure that future natural disasters will not affect the structure. By using in-factory, pre-fabricated, volunteer-friendly construction methods and equipment, Resilient House can be built for less than traditional, site-built housing.
       
     
  Project Type:  Competition  Location : Far Rockaway, NY  Completion : 2013  Area : 155 m², 1,666 ft²  Project Architect : Craig Race  Energy Use Intensity : Estimated: 96 kWh/m²  Total Energy Demand Reduction from Typical:  65%
