Passive house duplex in Whistler, built by Durfeld Constructors.

PASSIVE HOUSES All houses have personalities… but passive? It’s not a word that is commonly used to describe the places we call home… until now. According to Dr. Guido Wimmers, we are poised on the edge of a passive house revolution, one that will see the number of passive houses in our neighbourhoods increase dramatically. “Passive houses were largely developed in Germany in the early 1990s and describe comfortable, compact houses that are better insulated and better oriented to harness the power of the sun,” said Wimmers, who is arguably Canada’s leading passive house specialist. “Not only do they provide a healthier living environment, they operate on approximately 80 per cent less heating energy. That can translate into a 50 per cent reduction in your energy bill annually.” There are now about 40,000 to 50,000 purpose-built passive residential, commer-

cial and institutional buildings in Europe compared to a handful—perhaps 20 to 30— in date. Wimmers started teaching passive house building science three years ago at UBC, SFU, and BCIT and founded the Canadian Passive House Institute to offer training for professionals. He expects to see more passive houses popping up soon. “Comfort and well-being are the biggest drivers when someone decides to build a passive house,” said Wimmers, “but cost efficiency is also a deciding factor. It’s the most affordable way to build today. Passive houses are better built and more durable. Yes, you have to spend more up front, which means slightly higher financing costs on a monthly mortgage. But from day one, you’re saving that or more on energy costs. Over the long run, energy prices are going to go up, so you’re better off building a passive house. Its resale value is much higher than

an ordinary house.” To meet passive house standards, a building must meet specific energy requirements. The standard is up to 10 times more stringent than levels required in regular construction in North America and generally exceeds the energy savings achieved by LEED Platinum buildings. Passive houses use an efficient building shape, thoughtful solar exposure, superinsulation, advanced windows, air tightness, ventilation with heat recovery, ventilation air preheating, and thermalbridge-free construction. The design results in improved air quality and uniform temperature levels throughout the building. Passive house technology, Wimmers notes, is tricky to apply to older buildings. “A precondition to renovating a home to passive house standards is that the actual building needs to have a relatively high value,” he cautioned. “If this is not the case, it can


be difficult to achieve a financial advantage.” Wimmers himself purchased and renovated a Vancouver Special with passive house technology and components recently. He spent about 25 per cent of his renovation budget on energy-efficiency upgrades for the building, which also increased noise reduction and thermal comfort. “I was curious about how far you can go with passive house technology and an older home,” he said. “Vancouver Specials are relatively compact—they’re essentially boxes, and much easier to retrofit and achieve meaningful energy reductions than character homes.” The Canadian Passive House Institute (www. provides information about passive house design, technology and construction. Its member directory includes architects, engineers and contractors who specialize in passive house technology.

Community minded realtors

This custom home was designed to take advantage of the tremendous views of Cultus Lake from every floor. The master bedroom offers floor to ceiling windows that take in most of the lake. The upper balcony is a great place to enjoy a glass of wine with friends and family. High ceilings in the great room offer great natural light and stunning views. The front deck is a great place to enjoy a summer evening while taking in the action on the lake. Not only was this house well designed, but it has been tastefully renovated. A new kitchen, new bathrooms, and a new stone work/mantle around the fireplace are just some of the highlights.

Come home to inner calm:


Imagine a premier townhome project that has it all - stunning residences, great prices all in a vibrant, suburban Surrey neighbourhood, close to everything an urbanite wants. That’s what you get at Zen Townhomes, an exciting collection of 62 exclusive three storey residences, featuring three and four bedrooms, ranging in size from 1,344 to 1,984 square feet. Designed by Robert Ciccozzi Architecture, the timeless West coast craftsman-style Zen Townhomes has already garnered industry kudos (nominated for multiple Ovation and Georgie awards) and critical acclaim from its peers and buyers alike. These stunning contemporary, extra-spacious interiors are distinguished by sleek wide plank laminate flooring, nine-foot ceilings, sprawling windows to bring the outdoors in and an Italian stone tiled fireplace. Prospective buyers are equally impressed with the extraordinary value given their luxurious finishes. “A three bedroom tandem unit starting in the mid $300,000’s with GST included,” says Derek Fenton, development and marketing for Zenterra Developments. “Many remaining homes back onto a permanent green space.” The piece de resistance is the kitchen. It is touted as the largest (16 foot wide) gourmet style kitchen in a multifamily home development, with more cupboard space then you will ever need. The kitchens are an invitation to create gourmet cuisine, featuring luxurious finishes, such as crown molding coupled with extensive use of pot lighting, custom-designed shaker-style cabinetry with under-cabinet puck lighting, Lazy Susan in corner cabinetry, a large island (with optional wine fridge) and quartz countertops coupled with a modern glass backsplash.

The Whirlpool stainless steel appliance package is top of the line with a 5.0 Cu. Ft. Double Wall Oven - the ultimate culinary luxury, an Energy Star Qualified refrigerator with exterior ice and water dispenser, dishwasher, as well as a Kitchen Aid 5-burner gas cooktop. The Zenterra Signature Entertainment Wall on the main floor, accentuated by a custom designed modern elongated Italian stone-finished fireplace, elevating your home-movie experience to a new level, is also garnering a lot of favourable feedback. You can relax or entertain your guests in the 2,000 square foot “Zen” clubhouse. After a busy day, unwind on your large private deck or meander through the lush landscaping, which also includes an organic community garden. Both promise to offer that sense of Zen! Sales have been very strong with buyers responding very well to the final phase of Zen Townhomes. This is an opportunity to own a beautifully constructed townhome in the east Clayton/Willowbrooke neighbourhood, for quality that truly can’t be beat. Everything is within easy walking distance including great shopping, Big Box retailers and a great selection of boutique shops and malls. For years, Zenterra Developments has been and continues to be a trusted name in the industry. Based on honesty and integrity, you can rest assured that your home will be one you cherish for decades to come. The Zen Townhomes presentation centre is open daily from noon to 5 p.m. at 6588- 195A St. in Surrey. For more information, call 604-355-0166 or visit There is still a great selection of homes available with move-in dates as early as July 2014.
