Colorado’s first multi-family Certified Passive House. This exclusively electric, high-performance house exudes luxury while achieving comfort and energy efficiency 10X that of a traditionally built structure. This building is being certified through Passive Haus Institute, a German organization that certifies all types of buildings to the highest performance standard in the world. Comfort, durability and efficiency are achieved through an air-tight building envelope, super insulation, and continuously ventilated indoor air. Interior spaces are heated with a multi-zone Carrier heat pump system and filtered with a Zehnder ERV system. Kitchen appliances are sourced from Germany, Austria and Italy. Triple pane skylights from Germany and insulated UPVC windows made locally by Alpen High Performance Products in Louisville, CO. Thermory Ash boards accentuate the minimalist architectural style on the east and west faces. Interior finishes include Kahrs hardwood floors from Sweden, Brizo plumbing fixtures and Parana White Dolomite countertops imported from Brazil. Sterling Builders has showcased their talents and craftsmanship with Sugatsune hidden hinges and trimless recessed lighting throughout. Finishes seldom found at this price point.
