Plant Prefab’s New Passive Homes Push The Boundaries of Sustainability
Prefabricated design and construction company Plant Prefab has launched its first-ever collection of passive homes in collaboration with the Richard Pedranti Architect (RPA) firm. Plant and RPA designed three customizable passive homes called LivingHomes: the RPA LivingHome 1, 2, and 3—and all three homes meet the passive house standards of sustainability to ensure the lowest possible impact on the planet.
The passive homes, ranging in size between 2,218 to 3,182 square feet and featuring three to four bedrooms each, were designed to meet net zero energy standards. Each home features airtight construction, highly-efficient mechanical systems, dedicated fresh air systems, heat recovery ventilator systems, high-performance water heaters, high insulation, and high-performance windows and doors. Moreover, each home has a timeless modern design complemented by advanced building science.
