Hollis Montessori School

The Hollis Montessori School is comprised of 10,000 sq. ft. new classroom building, 4,800 sq. ft. adaptive reuse middle school with well equipped kitchen and community room, a connecting link and a 9 acre site with playground and apple orchard used for teaching purposes. The New Building is Passive House Certified. Passive House is a very stringent energy efficiency certification originating in Germany in 1990. Hollis Montessori is the first Passive House Certified classroom building in New England and probably the most energy efficient building in New Hampshire. Mechanical Design and Passive House Certification were done by Zero Energy Design - http://www.zeroenergy.com/md_hollis_passive_schoolhouse_windy.html (Photos by Eric Roth)
