Inspired by thickened stone walls of Chaco Canyon and the regional geology, Santa Fe Passive House is influenced by the region's vernacular architecture. The custom residence is notched into the juniper-studded hillside outside of Santa Fe, NM.
"We chose Zola for this ultra-low energy home because they offer the best performance-to-cost-ratio in the high performance window industry. If you want to achieve the stringent Passive House energy standard, your windows and doors are one of the most critical components. Our clients were intrigued with the aesthetic qualities, the craftsmanship and the color options of the wood clad window. The support and service we received from Zola was first class." – Joaquin Karcher, Zero E Design
