Live Net-Zero

With ZeroHouse

Project 1: ZeroHouse

ZeroHouse is a 1000-square foot, net-zero energy, one bedroom townhouse prototype being built in collaboration with the Endeavour Centre. Representative of a single upper unit of a multi-unit stacked townhouse development, it surpasses the highest standards of sustainable construction.

 

 

Modular Construction

ZeroHouse is designed to test a variety of emerging sustainable building practices. It's modular construction allows it to showcase several different insulation and construction methods within a single house, all of which use net-zero carbon emission throughout construction

Strategies

Using architectural design strategies which focus on passive conditioning, ZeroHouse's highly insulated walls and roof, paired with cross-ventilation and carefully designed shading, ensure a comfortable and efficient home.

Sustainability

By making use of innovative materials and prefabricated construction, the ZeroHouse has become a home that not only meets the needs of the planet, but also achieves a realistic market value.

The unique construction process for this project began in May 2017, and was exhibited at the Expo for Design, Innovation & Technology from September 28 to October 8, 2017. The ZeroHouse is now under construction in Collingwood, Ontario, and will be monitored for research purposes upon completion.
