COTE: Guided Tour of Solis Multifamily Passive House

A guided tour of the Solis Multifamily passive house. As a first of its kind building in Seattle, SOLIS aims to use 80% less energy than a typical multifamily building for heating and cooling. The residential portion of the building is pursuing the rigorous PHIUS+ passive building energy certification standard by the Passive House Institute US.
