About the Harmony House Project
Chris Mattock, the founder of Habitat Design + Consulting Ltd., is a leader in the design of high performance buildings and Canada and the Western Asia Pacific Region.
One of his recent projects garnered international attention as a winning entry in the (CMHC) Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s EQuilibrium™ – National Sustainable Housing Demonstration Initiative. This net-zero home produces as much energy as it uses on an annual basis – all from renewable sources.
This project incorporates low toxicity interior finishes, materials with recycled content, foam insulations using non ozone depleting expanding agents, water conservation and rain water harvesting. These measures lower environmental impact, conserve resources and create a healthy indoor environment for the occupants. This is the only Equilibrium home to be constructed on the West Coast and will be the first zero carbon building in British Columbia; meaning it will emit no greenhouse gases from heating, cooling, hot water and the use of electrical appliances.
