Pre-renovation this townhouse was in such poor conditions that most of its historic details were already removed. Adler Windows worked closely with Baxt Ingui Architects to replace all of the existing windows with brand new Zola Passive House windows.
Our experts selected and installed Zola’s thermo-wood tilt and turn windows and in-swing doors. For many clients, this product line hits the sweet spot in terms of value, performance, and craftsmanship. Zola’s windows and doors have become the industry’s go-to choice for high-performance buildings. The Thermo range features an 88 mm deep frame and triple glazing which puts them at the top of the list when it comes to energy efficient fenestration products.
New York City’s landmark preservation commission was very accommodating regarding the inclusion of Passive House principles in this townhouse renovation. To preserve the historic wood–frame doors, the front vestibule is isolated from the air-sealed envelope and an energy-recovery ventilator was included to introduce fresh air. The Brooklyn Heights homeowners are thrilled with how effortlessly comfortable and quiet their new home is. There is no tweaking of the thermostat and no waking up to the loud bustling noises of NYC – bliss!
