Honoured to be in the pages of Canadian Architect!
"Towards a Passive Architecture" is a great article about energy efficiency and Passive House in Canada. It showcases Tom and Christine's house in Toronto alongside two other amazing projects in Whistler and Edmonton. Thanks Elsa Lam and Canadian Architect!

Another blog update by our Sweetfern clients - this one about the process of designing a floor plan using prefab modules. The design process brings about important new insights, so the plans at the end don't always match what you thought they'd be at the beginning. We love going through that journey of discovery with our clients!

We often keep in touch with our clients after they move in. Just recently we heard from the owners of Black Bank Hill with their yearly report on energy consumption. In 2014 their all-electric house used 14,000 kWh, but their 10kW photovoltaic panel array produced 12,700 kWh, making the home almost Net-Zero! A few more sunny days might have done it!
