    Apparently my posts are getting censored. I\\\’ll try again. I don\\\’t think this house is Passive Haus Certfied. It placed last in the Solar Decathlon Europe Competition with the lowest score in comfort level (usually not associated with Passive Haus projects). Is there a moderator that can respond to my previous question?

    Is the FabLab House from SD Europe really Passive House Certified? I’m finding it hard to find any documentation that it is. Based on my experience of other Passive House Certified buildings, the design doesn’t appear to have the same general principles of insulation, shaded southern exposure, etc. I’m sure it may have been designed with passive design considerations, I just want to make sure that, like many of the other houses on this list, it is actually Passive House Certified.
