Passive House is a single-family residence with 1,730 square feet in size located in Accord, NY. This house is designed with the ability to produce more energy. North River Architecture and Planning uses some other features to create meaningful changes, especially in energy consumption. In result, Passive House is not only a great place for living but also a friendly-environment living place.
