BC Passive House Plant

The BC Passive House (BCPH) factory is a ‘all wood construction demonstration project. The building was the vision of a company dedicated to the concept of truly sustainable construction methodologies, typified by the international Passive House Standard. BCPH mandated that the facility design must exemplify their commitment to wood design and sustainable construction practices.
Hemsworth Architecture use natural daylight and exposed wood finishes within the building to produce a warm, comfortable, and inspiring workspace. The main motivation for the project’s design was the inspiration that industrial or everyday buildings, which make up a vast amount of our built environment, can be just as important, and well considered, as our more public and ‘architectural’ buildings.
