New Jersey's First Passive House

RAMSEY, NJ  |  COMPLETED: 2015  |  PHOTOS: RIVER ARCHITECTS

 
 

The Ramsey Passive House is a modern take on the classic American farmhouse. River Architects set fun, modern geometric volumes around the pure gabled roof. These playful forms provide various gathering spaces that are central to a family life as well as quiet contemplative spaces for work and creativity. The house represents the family's core COMMITMENT to sustainable living: food is grown in their organic garden, meals are created and shared together, and lessons in social and ENVIRONMENTAL responsibility are a part of everyday living.
