Nu-Air 400C Chosen for Green Showcase Home

Toronto, Ontario
The winning design for the Archetype for a Sustainable House was announced in Toronto on June 21, 2008.

The Archetype for a Sustainable House competition was a design competition organized by the Toronto Region Conservation Authority (TRCA). The challenge was to build a sustainable single family home that demonstrated the best in environmentally sustainable design and would be a model for housing development in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and beyond. The winning design from Fort Architect, called “Building Blocks” (shown) is a completely modular duplex concept and is being built as a part of ‘The Living City Campus’ at the Kortright Centre for Conservation (also home to the World Green Building Council).
