About Us

The Passive House principle was discovered using scientific principles and inspiration from buildings, scientists, and industry professionals across the globe. Interestingly, the first fully functioning passive house was not actually a house, but a polar ship named “Fram”. It was built at the end of the 18th century to carry Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen to the North Pole.

In 1988, the "passive house” concept was systematically launched by German physicist Professor Wolfgang Feist during a research period at the University of Luden in Sweden, together with the host scientist, Professor Bo Adamson. The pair continued to develop the scientific basis for the passive house concept in tandem until Adamson’s retirement.

Passific House builds sustainable high-tech buildings using passive house methodologies. Our homes adopt impactful and reliable building technologies. We apply the perfect blend of artistry and scientific innovation to design breathtaking living spaces. We are guided by advanced building physics and all our calculations and models are scientifically peer reviewed.
