Jun 2013 - Through House wins one of eight Canadian Green Building Awards
The Canadian Green Building annual awards recognize the best Canadian green buildings as selected by a panel of independent design and building professionals.
Jury Comments - Through House is a simple and elegant renovation that combines beautiful design with impressive energy performance. The straightforward approaches taken to daylight and natural ventilation are indicative of how the many green strategies are deftly interwoven into the architecture. Located in a neighbourhood of modest, late 19th century worker housing, this project demonstrates the potential for this typology to provide a sustainable, ground oriented and cost effective alternative to the high-rise condominium.
