Studio 804 has put together a contemporary efficient energy abode in collaboration with the University of Kansas' architecture school that is specifically engineered to have a low consumption impact on the environment. The house is known as the New York Street Passive House demonstrates a modern way of building homes that requires much less energy, and therefore creates a significantly smaller carbon footprint.
The home is embedded with dozens of energy-reducing and environmentally friendly features, to reduce the impact the home has on the environment. The design of the space is all done to specifically make use of the setting and harnessing natural energy. This includes having a rectangular layout coupled with solar panels facing the north to collect the most amount of sunlight. The home also has a thermal interior to reduce heat loss and sustainable cedar facades.
