Nestled in a quiet North Vancouver neighbourhood lies a state of the art home, one of the first of its kind in Canada.From it's thick rammed-earth walls, to its photovoltaic power system, the "Midori Uchi" is pushing the envelope of green design.
While dozens of technologies were incorporated to achieve exceptionally high performance, the building enclose sticks out in particular.
The homes overall rating is R-33 - 60% higher than required by BC's building code. A large contributor to that is the glazing system installed.
The Midori Uchi features 300A triple glazed fiberglass Cascadia Windows, custom built here in Langley, BC. The windows have R-5 to R-6.5 energy ratings.
