Forbes magazine writer Regina Cole crafts an article about New England high-end homeowner’s interest beyond style and beauty - a growing interest in energy.
The article offers design insights from prominent New England architects, including Stephanie Horowitz, Managing Director at ZeroEnergy Design who shares, “Our clients are well schooled in matters of energy conservation; they come to us with a high level of knowledge.”
Stephanie notes that eco-conscious clients interested in gardening often look for basement root cellars to augment upstairs food storage as part of their general goal towards resiliency and self-sufficiency - ZED’s Farmstead Passive House in Vermont is a good example. She also mentions that Passive House, which advocates rigorous standards for energy efficiency in buildings, is particularly suitable for New England’s cold weather conditions.
