Gramercy Townhouse is a Passive House.

What is a passive house? From the outside, a passive house may be indistinguishable from any other, and indeed this very subtlety is one of its most appealing qualities. The principle of the passive house was first pioneered in the 1970s (and finally completed in the 1990s by Dr. Wolfgang Feist) as a way to maximize thermal and acoustic efficacy while also ensuring the freshest possible air. In other words, a passive house is superbly insulated, incredibly quiet, and maintains optimal air quality—all while expending minimal energy.

The word “passive” indicates that this design strategy drastically curtails a building’s carbon footprint by reducing energy usage by up to 90%. The passive house utilizes 5 core components: an absolutely airtight enclosure, a continuous insulated exterior (almost like an envelope), solar orientation, high performance windows and doors, and an active High Efficiency Heat Recovery Ventilation System which continuously filters airflow.

Unlike most hotels in New York, for which frequent turnover also promotes wastefulness and the excess use of harmful chemicals, the passive house creates a sustainable, clean living environment that is also supremely comfortable, and healthy.
