The Harvard Center for Green Buildings & Cities (CGBC) retrofitted its headquarters in 2017, a pre-1940s house in Cambridge, MA, into a first-of-its-kind test case to demonstrate unprecedented levels of building efficiency & promote substantial shifts in the design & operation of existing buildings. Dubbed HouseZero, the project aims to prove that ultra-efficient retrofits can, indeed, be achieved & replicated by coupling current technologies with better design.
The Morgan Avenue site is currently under construction & will be a private event space & botanical garden that features 10,000 square feet of interior & exterior space equipped with flexible accommodations for hosting special events. The construction is a result of years of study & development with a team of architects, engineers, gardeners, & informed environmental specialists.
Pioneer of Natural Ventilation: Adaptable & Intelligent Solutions is an official Archtober affiliate event. Archtober is organized by AIA New York l Center for Architecture.
