LEED Platinum 2009

This 1930 sf home is the second of a series of prototypes that was built as part of the OPEN Prototype Initiative - a joint venture into rethinking the way we build homes in the US between Bensonwood, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and other construction industry members. It achieved LEED Platinum, serving as a living classroom for Unity College students, faculty and the public. Originally built to be the home of the college's president, the space is being opened to classroom, office, and meeting space use in 2016. The passive solar home is run entirely on electrical energy, using a heat pump for heating and cooling, features a 5.4 KW PV array and solar domestic hot water system. Specific attention was given to optimizing the thermal envelope and minimizing the space needed to accommodate various sized groups of people.
