Powahouse

We designed, developed and built the first Passive House in Boston.

Project Story

Powahouse is a three-family, urban infill, Passive House development in Roxbury MA.

We took a risk in a slow housing market, to see if units in a speculative Passive House would sell. They did! One unit was sold before construction even began, and the other two sold quickly, in just the framing stage.

Because the units were sold before or during the construction process, we were able to customize each of the units for the individual clients including furniture, tile, and fixtures. 

Pow! Powahouse packs a big punch.
