Gallery: Re:Vision Architecture Merges Historic Quaker House With Net Z...

 
The 12.6 Kw solar array, while not huge, is more than enough energy for the new building and provides enough to supplement for the historic gathering house making the entire project net-zero energy.

The 150 year old Quaker house, now a small museum, needed structural improvements and a new place for gatherings. The design takes advantage of the work by inserting underfloor heating tubing into the old building. New, but historically accurate, windows also help with efficiency.
