Event Details

High performance meets high design in the recently completed Karuna House, the first building to achieve three of the world’s most demanding energy efficiency certifications:  LEED for Homes Platinum, Minergie-P-ECO, and Passive House. Join Hammer & Hand and Holst Architecture for a Friday class and Saturday project tour that dispel the myth that high performance building and high design don’t mix. Karuna House’s combination of advanced building science and artful construction detailing has resulted in both award-winning design and revolutionary energy performance. The home earned AIA Portland’s 2030 Design Award last year and has reached Net Positive energy use: onsite solar panels power the home and charge the owner’s Tesla.

Friday’s class will begin with a primer on the Passive House approach to super-efficient building, presented by Sam Hagerman, owner of Hammer & Hand and inaugural President of the Passive House Alliance US. Holst Architecture partner Jeffrey Stuhr and associate Cory Hawbecker, Sustainability Coordinator at Holst, will then describe the design and construction of Karuna House, its multiple green building certifications, and how the home’s high performance details dovetailed with the project’s programmatic and aesthetic goals.

Saturday’s tour will build on this class material and offer the rare opportunity to view the Karuna House, guided by the project team. Sam, Jeffrey, Cory, and H&H project supervisor Scott Gunter will review the project onsite, diving deep into inspirations, assemblies, and lessons learned.

 

Friday, July 25: 2-hour class, AIA Portland Office. Earn 2 HSW/SD LUs.

 

Saturday, July 26: 1-hour tour, Karuna House, Newberg, OR. 1 HSW/SD LU.

 

 

Friday's class will include a primer on Passive House US standards, followed by a case study examination of the design and construction of Karuna House. Saturday's home tour will build on this class material and feature members of the project team diving deep into inspirations, assemblies, and lessons learned.
