Sustainable Ballard + Heliotrope Architects + Hammer & Hand
Ballard Green Building Talk
featuring a high performance | high design addition
Presented by: Joe Herrin (Heliotrope) + Sam Hagerman (H&H)
This Loyal Heights addition took a small “Ballard Box” cottage and added a modernist sister structure that pays homage to the neighborhood’s architecture, while saving energy.
The project drew on the combined talents of architect, clients, and builder to create a confluence of high-design and high-performance building. Design was by Heliotrope Architects. Passive House- inspired building shell by Hammer & Hand. The young homeowners did all finish work themselves to keep costs low.
Join the architect, builder, and homeowners for a tour of the still-in-process home and their joint telling of this uniquely Ballard green building tale.
When & Where
Ballard Green Building Talks
The Ballard Green Building Talks bring together experts in the green building and renovation fields and members of the Ballard community interested in retrofitting their homes for energy efficiency. These short talks are held in neighborhood homes that have been retrofitted and are followed by a brief Q&A session and tour. The goal of the speaker series is to educate and to take the mystery out of green building by giving real-world examples of successful projects.
