VIA architecture designs beautiful modern comfortable Passive House (Passivhaus) homes.
VIA architecture also consults to other architects and designers (or their clients) to ensure their design can meet the Passive House standard without compromising their creativity. Includes: design reviews, PHPP modelling, thermal bridge modelling, Blower door air testing, site observation.
Passive House is a rigorous international performance standard for exceptional quality assurance, indoor comfort and energy efficiency.
Passive House architecture can transform your quality of life by providing optimum living conditions with minimal energy costs. Most NZ houses have poor-quality indoor air, are cold and draughty in winter and too hot in summer. For your health and quality of life, your home should have excellent indoor air quality, should be draught-free, and should be pleasantly warm in winter and pleasantly cool in summer. Passive House architecture ensures these outcomes for your quality of life and peace of mind.
We work nationally across NZ.
