475 was proud to participate in the global event International Passive House Days on November 12th with a wine reception featuring the documentary Passive Passion. The filmmaker Charlie Hoxie was in attendance, along with a great group of people from around the New York region active in Passive House work or just looking to find out more.
4 of the 8 Passive House project featured in the New York area tours – organized by NY Passive House -are projects of 475 partners Ken Levenson and Floris Keverling Buisman working as architect and/or Passive House Consultant. These include a single family retrofit in Westport CT, a multi-family retrofit in Prospect Heights Brooklyn, a three family retrofit in Harlem, and a two family retrofit in Park Slope Brooklyn . It is exciting to see so much Passive House activity going on around NY and the world.
