435 Indio Way is an over 50-year old single-story tilt-up in Sunnyvale, California, that was renovated to achieve net-zero energy. The building incorporates innovative design strategies for climate-response as well as occupant wellness while reducing costs by as much as $100.83/sft as compared to similar minimum-code buildings. The energy-efficient building in fact exceeds its design goals and supplies energy back to the grid. 435 Indio Way’s most outstanding feature is that it’s cooled only by passive strategies, with a backup HVAC system that is 22% smaller than conventional systems.
