At an awards ceremony on 8 Jan 2015 at the National Institute of Building Sciences’ conference in Washington, DC, Hammer & Hand’s Sam Hagerman accepted a Beyond Green Merit Award on behalf of the Karuna House and its project team.

One of just four Beyond Green Awards granted by the Institute and its Sustainable Building Industry Council this year, Karuna House’s award recognizes the home’s role as a national exemplar of high performance green building. Designed by Holst Architecture and built by Hammer & Hand, Karuna House is the first in the world to achieve the green building triple crown of Passive House, LEED, and Minergie certifications.

“Their [the Karuna House Project Team] pursuit of three different certifications is commendable and can provide valuable lessons for the industry,” said Beyond Green jurist RK Stewart, FAIA. “Achievement of these certifications points to the importance of integrated processes and whole building design.”

“The owner of Karuna House created the project as a case study for what can be accomplished in high performance green building,” said Hagerman after accepting the award. “So it’s gratifying to see the project receive this recognition. It’s an honor to be part of the team.”
