Kaplan Thompson Architects Unveil Super-Efficient Harborview Townhomes in Portland, Maine
Designed by Kaplan Thompson Architects of Portland, ME, the Harborview Townhomes meet the Architecture 2030 guidelines for limiting carbon emissions while increasing density in an urban environment and maintaining a contemporary, locally-derived character. The highly-insulated 7-unit building sits on a narrow ½-acre lot within walking distance to downtown and employs efficiency features such as optimized sun shading, air-source heat pumps, and energy recovery ventilators.
