the Zero Six
This development is comprised of 6, single family homes a short stroll from Philadelphia's Laurel Hill Cemetery. Grounded by a red brick base and slate roof above, these homes borrow elements from thieir surroundings while harkening back to builidngs of old. A 3-story mansard roof distorts one's perception of height as floor plate locations are blurred.
These townhomes front a narrow "Woonerf," or a living street made up of plantings and paved with the brick of past structures on site. Designed to meet Passive House's rigurous air tightness and energy metrics, a solar array allows the project to move one step further: achieveing Passive House Source Zero (Energy) certification.
