Farnham avenue house is a single-family detached residentail infill project. Some of the Eco-friendly design aspects are time honored such as, vertical ventilation and natural daylight shafts, dynamic cross ventilation, passive solar shading, and super insulation. Other features have been around for a long time, but are not that common on a confined city lot, such as geothermal heating and cooling. There are major elements that are reclaimed such as the exterior brick and structural timbers. Numerous locally sourced materials are incorporated. And some components are cutting edge technology, such as the bi-facial solar panels tied into the Ontario government's FIT (feed-in Tariff) program. This house is a merging of old and new eco friendly architectural technologies.
