Park Passive is Seattle’s first certified Passive House, reducing heating consumption by nearly 90% to meet the rigorous standards for certification by the Passive House Academy and authorized by the Passivhaus Institut. Located on a small infill lot in Madison Park, this striking three-story modern home features a day-lit open stairwell with punctuated views to the street, double-height vaulted kitchen ceilings that visually connect the main living area to an upstairs kids play area, and an open floor plan that flows into a small yard. Park Passive is a model of innovative design that blends livability with sustainability.
