Passive House Canada published their annual book ‘Passive House Buildings in Canada: Transforming How We Build’ this week. Kearns Mancini Architects Inc is featured in a company profile and in 2 case studies.
From our profile page (36):
“KMAI now seeks to integrate Passive House principles into all future projects, even if designing to meet the thresholds in their entirety is simply not feasible.”
Our YWCA Residence is featured on page 38:
“The building consists of a variety of community centre spaces within a podium level, designed to respond to the surrounding contextual fabric.”
KMAI’s UTSC Student Residence compliance project is featured on page 74:
“Few Passive House examples compare with this project in scale, energy demand, and climate variation… the primary concern was to arrange and orient the spaces to provide sufficient cooling.”
