Extended Eave w/ Sprinkler Protection at Ankeny Row*

Ankeny Row is an environmentally-friendly, socially engaging cohousing community in Portland, Oregon with five townhomes, a loft apartment and a community hall surrounding a central courtyard. A Passive House development with a net-zero energy goal, the buildings use an airtight super-insulated building envelope, innovative heat recovery ventilation and passive solar strategies to sharply reduce energy demand.  Extended 48” deep eaves that shade the large south facing windows on the topmost floor, and a combustible material wood deck were approved after two successful code appeals, by including fire sprinkler protection.
