Harvards House Zero is a reference project for ultra-energy-efficient, healthy, energy-positive construction operation.
The HouseZero project, an initiative by Harvard’s Center for Green Buildings and Cities (CGBC), has a lofty goal: creating a new prototype of ultra-efficient building that requires almost zero energy, relies on natural daylighting, and produces no carbon emissions. The concept is based on affordable renovation. By retrofitting and redesigning the program’s offices in a prewar, stick-built home, the CGBC hopes to show that any existing commercial or residential building can become a model of efficiency, and cut emissions without requiring a huge investment.
