Located in the Washington Park neighborhood in Denver, this second floor addition and energy retrofit transforms an existing single story brick bungalow by adding R-20 continuous insulation to the exterior, high-gain windows on the south fascade, allowing mini-split heat pumps to serve as primary heating supply for addition.
Designed in collaboration with the clients and builder/artist Bill McDonald of Denver, interior finishes include reclaimed wood doors and custom fabricated barn doors complementing the existing brick to create the clients’ desired loft feel.
The design process with Brian was incredibly smooth. We love his positive, breezy attitude. He is there for you when you have questions, and is very responsive to every need and want. His passivhaus and green building knowledge is superb, and we took advantage of that in our remodel of an existing home. Brian took our very challenging remodel and transformed a dowdy house into one that stops traffic. His attitude made a project that could have been difficult actually fun to do. We loved working with him and would do it again. -Deb and Ron
