Village Centre is Maine’s first large-scale multifamily Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) certified project. The building which is located on a former brownfield site, is a 3-story, 54,000 sf, 48-unit affordable housing development with 1, 2 and 3-bedroom units. The building is designed for low energy consumption by employing a super-insulated building envelope. One of the greatest challenges for the project was designing systems with such high standards while staying within a conventional budget. As a publicly-funded development under the Maine State Housing Authority, construction costs were limited.
The Development supports and encourages community interaction within the interior and exterior public spaces. The project includes an indoor Children’s Play area, Community Room with Kitchen, outdoor Playground and Garden area.
Furniture Consultant Services were provided for the Lobby, Elevator Lobby, Community Room, Kitchen, Library, Children’s Play area and the Property Management Office.
