Conceived as a sustainable reinterpretation of a monolithic gable roof house, the Palatine Passive House integrates modern residential form with innovative building technologies.

Apart from an abundantly glazed entrance gesture, the distinctive façade is windowless in order to meet passive house certification standards.
ByÂ JON SILVER, Seattle Daily Journal Matt Frock spent eight years as an art teacher, but decided he was ready to return to an earlier career:Â construction. He’d been a builder for six years in San Francisco and Portland. Frock wasn’t looking to work for just any contractor, though. As a nature-lover who likes to backpack, â€œI knew I wanted to incorporate sustainable building as much as I could,â€ he said. After some research, Frock started working with Earthship360, a Philadelphia-based design-build company that specializes in deep-green projects. (He also opened a home-remodeling business in Philadelphia.)
