Video: Inside Brooklyn’s Passive Houses


    Brooklyn Independent Television’s Brooklyn Review takes a look at Passive House projects happening in Brooklyn during a recent open house tour. They speak with the architects at 228 Washington Avenue, a project well known to Brownstoner readers, and 96 St. Marks Avenue, a passive condo building that hit the market in the fall. The video does a good job explaining all the components that go into a passive house and what it means to design a passive house in a historic neighborhood. Brendan Aguayo, the developer at 96 St. Marks Avenue, says that “Brooklyn has become the hub for passive house,” and he thinks that there are more passive house projects in Brooklyn than anywhere else in the country.
