Esalen Institute

Given the oceanside location of Esalen, high levels of insulation, and passive solar orientation, these units have very low heating demands and aren't expected to have cooling concerns. To align with the client's goals for low first cost and systems simplicity, we designed the mechanical systems to include electric resistance baseboard radiators paired with through-the-wall (ductless) heat recovery ventilators (HRVs).

Construction was completed in the fall of 2017.
