Case Study: Passive House Windows Installed Into NYC Landmark District

Published on

On 60 White Street in TriBeCa stands a 146-year-old residential building. A structure that was once used and abused, has recently undergone a total renovation under the Sorgente Group of America.  Approximately 80% of materials used in the renovation have been restored and reclaimed from the existing structure, while everything else has been locally sourced.

The building falls under New York City’s Landmark Preservation Commission, which made Adler Windows all that more excited to be the installer of the new Passive House: Zola Windows.

Passive House is a rapidly emerging construction standard requiring buildings to use an extremely small amount of energy for heating and cooling. In order to meet these standards, buildings are insulated to the point of being virtually airtight. Our manufacturer, Zola, is at the forefront of crafting windows that meet PH standards. For 60 White Street, a brand new class of window has been created that pushes the technological envelope while faithfully replicating the look appropriate for a 146-year-old historic edifice.

Our Zola windows will be installed alongside Darby Marble; sourced from the world’s largest underground quarry which is complimented by an oak wood from The Hudson Company wood.
