The Beta 2.5 House is the last and biggest of the original (8) 100K Houses by Interface Studio Architects. The 100K House goal is to provide LEED Platinum, minimalist, urban infill as a production housing model. While the first (7) houses were all hovering around 1100SF, this house is larger with more amenities as it seeks a broader market. It features double-stud construction, Passive House grade windows, Certainteed fiber cement cladding and a large terrace. The blower door test proved its Passive House level infiltration rate.
