    Spungen Residence
    This Brooklyn Heights brownstone, home to the Spungen family, became the first passive-certified, landmarked home in Brooklyn after Michael Ingui, partner at Baxt Ingui Architects, renovated the townhouse to become more energy efficient. To bring the brownstone to passive-house-level efficiency, Ingui eliminated thermal bridges, added insulation to the roof, installed new windows and put in a fresh air system. The home won for historic restoration.
