Located in West Vancouver, the Westbay Passive House introduced a sustainability-conscious design ethos to the area by creating a home that was both architecturally pleasing and passive certified. The home achieved a Passive House Plus certification, an Energuide Rating of 0 tonnes of Green House Gas, and a 0 GJ of energy consumption rating.

Capturing the ocean view was critical to the design so triple-glazed thermally-broken glazing systems were used to minimize the heat loss and overhangs were designed for passive shading. The superstructure was built with prefabricated CLT panels which provided a very durable and robust building core.
