Ultra-Low Energy Multifamily Residence: La Valentina North Townhomes

Case Study / December 19, 2015 / Getting to Zero / Existing Buildings

The La Valentine North Townhome project is the result of a partnership between SMUD and the owner/developer of the project, Domus Development LLC. The 18-unit affordable multifamily development is a research and demonstration project in SMUD’s Townhouse Home of the Future (HOF) program. The team considered the reduction of solar heat gain, a large energy driver in Sacramento’s hot climate, as a primary design objective. This Home of the Future Demonstration Program project features promising and efficient technologies that can be shared as lessons with local builders and ideally incorporated into SMUD’s SolarSmart Homes program.
