The Path to Zero Energy

EcoFlats was the first ​“Path to Net Zero Energy” project in Energy Trust of Oregon’s initiative, pushing the boundaries of passive ventilation and cooling through creative design and affordable construction.
Natural & Breathable
One of the first contemporary Portland projects to employ deliberately programmed exterior egress balconies and ample operable glazing to maximize every unit’s access to natural light and fresh air.

The Future Of Energy
The typical multi-family formula was given a fresh approach while creating an economic construction methodology. A large photo-voltaic array and solar thermal water heating system work to offset the building’s energy use, and screens on display in the lobby share real-time energy use. The idea that information can create extra incentive for individual environmental responsibility was tested and proven, making ecoFLATS an early example of long-standing success.
