Project Description

LEED Platinum for Homes meets Passive House this September, as Manhattan welcomes its very first Certified Passive House. A Passive House is a building which optimizes indoor air quality, offers extreme thermal comfort to its tenants, and uses up to 90% less energy than a conventional building.

The meticulously redesigned 25 West 88th Street is not only certified by the Passive House Academy, but also a certified LEED Platinum for Homes building—one of the first buildings to ever achieve dual Passive House and LEED Platinum certification.

Developed by Baxt Ingui Architects, an innovative New York City design firm, this historic landmark building offers the most advanced energy performance and thermal comfort while still maintaining a beautifully- preserved landmark. The clients are especially excited about the design flexibility their unassuming Passive House offers, unconstrained by the bulky ductwork and radiators which occupy space in conventional buildings.
