Mountbatten Home

Ottawa, Ontario

Mountbatten is a prototype for a Net Zero, 4 bedroom single family home. The crisp modest asymmetrical form creates a large south facing roof area for the installation of solar panels. A clerestory “lightbox” perched on top of the roof brings natural light into the center of the plan. In addition, high performance south facing glazing along the street provides for ample day lighting. High efficiency mechanical equipment and wall systems are proposed throughout.

A ground level master suite allows aging in place opportunities, and a separate basement apartment creates the potential for extended family living situations.
