CATSKILL PASSIVE RESIDENCE
Designed by River Architects, and built by Baxter, this 4,600 square foot Passive private residence in Catskill, NY is a modern take on the classic American farmhouse with clean lines. The retreat home with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms has been recognized as highly energy efficient. The home features Bensonwood panels, which are high-performance and low embodied-energy panels which are produced in an off-site, controlled setting.
Design features include custom pendant lighting from Tracy Glover Studio, staircase made of steel and wood, and poured concrete flooring. The Tesla Powerwall system and high-performance windows contribute to the goal of being carbon-neutral.
