Solares Architecture - Their House

Solares Builds Themselves a Sustainable Home

Solares Architecture works hard to succeed in designing energy efficient homes that are sustainable, ecologically friendly and comfortable to live in. Solares are experts in building by the standards of Passive Solar and Passive House Design and exceeding your expectations. Christine and Tom, the founders of Solares Architecture have recently completed redesigning their home to be more energy efficient. After nine months of hard work, the Lolley family is living in their renovated home from top to bottom, in and out, ultimately reaching a reduction of 84 percent in energy use. The following is a list of only several areas of the house that were altered:
