This is Arlington Passivhaus, a sustainable architecture design of a house based on the Passivhaus standard, which was the first built passivhaus in Arlington, designed by Zavos Architecture + Design. Besides some sustainable features, this house is also completed by green roof.

The sustainable building design was focused on airtightness and energy efficiency. Some materials, such as Neopor EPS SIPs, Intus triple-pane windows, are used to provide good insulation and good energy efficiency. It is supported by the using of an energy recovery ventilator, a heat-pump water heater, mini-split HVAC system, LED and CFL lighting to provide  the energy conservation. Solar panels are ready to be installed at the roof, and EV are available in the garage.

The green roofing feature may provide additional insulation for the sustainable green building. Green building materials and finishes are used, such as low- and zero-VOC paints and adhesives, bamboo floors, and no-added formaldehyde cabinets, etc, to provide healthy environment.

The landscaping of this green building construction was designed by Scott Brinitzer Design Associates . A smart storm water management technique were provided, where excess storm water will be guided through various parts of the yard and allows the soil to soak up storm water along the way.
