Certified Passive House Consultant, LEED-AP
Of twenty years of practice, Matt has spent the last ten in affordable multifamily housing work. Following his 2010 PHIUS training, Matt did pioneering work in high performance multifamily housing as Director of ZA+Dpassiv, a division of Zavos Architecture+Design, LLC (ZA+D). He was the project leader of that firm’s very successful Weinberg Commons (projected PHIUS+ certification in 2016), a retrofit of 36 affordable dwelling units within three 1960’s era buildings. The project is the first Passive House retrofit of affordable housing in the region.
As a Certified Passive House Consultant, Matt has also led a variety of high-performance single family home projects. He collaborated in the design of the Arlington Passivhaus project, and was consultant to Parsons The New School for Design on the 2011 Solar Decathlon entry known as Empowerhouse. He also captained Habitat for Humanity’s PHIUS+ Certified Ivy City Passive Townhouse project through its duration.
