HomeNZ – Net-Zero Single Family Home Design Competition
Homenz provides a new model for a sustainable and affordable single family home in Phoenix Arizona; a beautiful modern home with open, flexible spaces that integrates the landscape and operates with near net zero energy use and at net zero energy use with solar panels and battery. The project was a design competition that was won by the firm, then the city of Phoenix sponsored the completion of design documents for getting it built.
The project was designed with intensive collaboration with contractor and engineers to establish building construction and features to optimize daylighting, natural ventilation, and building envelope performance which minimizes energy required for operation.
