Seventh-day Adventists Church at Kinderhook is the PHIUS 2017 Commercial Winner and the first passive house certified (PHIUS) church in the United States. Located in upstate New York, thechurch features INTUS Eforte steel reinforced triple pane polymer windows to achieve a traditional chapel design with a modern twist. The 7,200 SF building includes a timber-framed sanctuary with an open ceiling and a wall of glass at one end. An attached wing houses classrooms, an area for toddlers, a pastor’s office, a fellowship hall, and a kitchen.
This project was one of the first commercial passive buildings in the country, but despite the obstacles, the congregation was committed to it acting as God’s stewards of planet Earth and creating a passive house church.
