It is wonderful to see more and more homes designed to Passiv Haus standards. This French simple, yet sculptural home designed by Karawitz Architecture is a delicious example of smart principles meeting thoughtful design.
The walls are solid on the north to limit energy loss and are open to the south to maximize benefits from the sun, with bamboo shutters for flexibility in controlling the sun at different times of the year and the day. This project was labeled the best-performance, low-consumption house in France and the first house in the Parisian region to receive the European labeled certification PHI “Passiv Haus Institute”.
