Locust Residence

The Sheward Partnership was commissioned to provide Sustainability, LEED, and Passive House Consulting Services for the renovation of an historic three story row home in Center City Philadelphia. This state-of-the-art home achieved LEED for Homes Platinum Certification and is aggressively targeting net zero energy use by adopting Passive House building principles. A high end environmentally friendly interior design is complemented by a deep energy retrofit including an air-tight, highly insulated envelope, energy recovery ventilation, triple pane windows, two high efficiency heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, and a solar-ready infrastructure for the future photovoltaic energy system.
