Where it all started. 


Completed in 2011, this 1846 landmarked retrofit in Brooklyn Heights is one of NYC's first Passive Houses and where it all started for sgBUILD.  It achieved 1.0 ACH50 in its final pressure tests and hit all of the Passive House design requirements for thermal shell design. While not technically certified, it meets all the requirements of the newer ENERPHIT PH requirements.

Did we mention that it is perfectly quiet, fresh and unaffected by the weather extremes just outside its doors? This is where we fell in love with Passive House.
