Detroit Eco Office

Sustainable net-zero building facade & systems design.

The Detroit Eco-Office was conceived as a result of an exhaustive research project examining Baumschlager-Eberle’s Eco-School in Mäder, Austria. Designing upon the passive heating & cooling facade system used in the school, the Eco-Office utilizes a external single glazing curtain wall and internal operable double-glazing window system to allow airflow in the summer and heat retention in the winter.
