Pass Block 3 represents the third in the series of the architect Spend Holiday with a focus on maximizing environments for outdoor living structurally “hovering” the building envelope above the roof land.Unlike living environments, Hover Houses are comfortably protected, integrated in landscape and provide much needed land permeable to groundwater environments replenishment.Unlike living roof, Hover Houses are comfortably protected, integrated into the landscape and provide much needed land susceptible to ground water replenishment.The hope is that the Pass House concept provides a standard in temperate regions to eliminate significant portions of the floor area in exchange for inside seating areas outside, saving resources and reducing the carbon footprint of the project. Roof-mounted photovoltaic panels offset 80% of power demands. With the exception of interior wall paint, all interior finishes are devised to last indefinitely so that future emissions from finish replacements are minimized or eliminated.” The residence also features a special system for reducing outdoor noise.
