In 1988 teachers Bo Adamson, from Lund University in Sweden, and Wolfgang Feist, from the Institute for Housing and the Environment of Germany, came up with this type of structure coined the term passivhaus (“Passive House” in German).


The High-Performance Passive House concept has expanded to many countries and climate zones, and there are now more than 60,000 Passive House projects around the world.

There are 2,000 buildings certified as Passive House in Canada. The first in Toronto was certified in 2019.


High-Performance Passive Houses must adhere to strict building criteria, consuming up to 90% less heating and cooling energy when compared to conventional buildings.


Despite considerably lower operating costs, industry leaders agree that the cost of building a passive house is only ten percent higher than building a house that simply meets local code requirements.

you deserve a high-performance home

Quiet | Comfort | Durable | Mindful | Healthy

A High-Performance home surpasses outdated conventions in both design and construction by focusing on the most critical outcomes of your home’s performance. This requires an integrated design and construction approach which recognizes the house as a system. In other words, every element involved in building your home must work together to deliver a meaningful overall result. These homes require the guidance of a qualified and dedicated builder to ensure these outcomes are quality assured and verified from concept through completion. Frontiers defines these outcomes as the 5 Principles of High-Performance Building.

Uncompromising Design and Construction Based on Frontiers Five Principles.
Built to Meet or Exceed Stringent Passive House Standards.

Built for living, these are the most comfortable and energy efficient homes you will find anywhere.
Strikingly still

Your home is your place to rest, relax, and recuperate from a busy day. You deserve a home that can insulate you from the beeps, vrooms, and barks of the outside world. Heavily insulated walls and high-quality, triple-pane windows and doors bring a striking stillness throughout your home. The simple act of closing a window or door will give you the peace you deserve.


Whether it’s a blizzard outside your window or the middle of a hot summer day, every room in your home should provide you with a consistent, comfortable temperature. High-performance homes are built to be airtight, wrapped in a warm blanket of insulation and premium-quality windows and doors. Say so long to the drafty office, stifling bedroom, and cold floors.

Generational quality

Your home is built to last. Durability is not an upgrade, it’s a standard inherent to your high-performance home that will last for generations..  Every home starts with thoughtful planning and carefully considering the materials and their sources before using them in your home. The entire build is quality controlled, meticulously documented through third-party verification to meet the highest industry standards. 

A sustainable approach

There is no better investment than a home that provides lasting comfort, a healthy indoor environment, and protection from rising energy prices. High-performance homes  are designed and built to be more efficient, sustainable, and durable, saving you a significant amount of money over time and providing you with peace of mind knowing that your home will be part of a thoughtful movement toward a better future.

Breathe Easy

Nothing is more important than the quality of the air in your home. Pollutants, allergens, and moisture can infiltrate your living space through gaps and cracks in your walls, windows, and foundation in conventionally built homes. High-performance homes require carefully designed air-tight construction, giving you complete control over the quality of the air you breathe by way of carefully designed and crafted filtered ventilation systems.
