We’re proud to present the Moyle Drive Duplex, an energy efficient pair of homes created by SMPL Design.

Located in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories of Canada, this home is rated 82 within the Energuide efficiency platform, which means these homes use 40-55% less energy to operate than a traditional home. The exterior finishing is crafted with zero maintenance in mind, using corrugated metal, exposed beams, and treated wood. The wood itself has been sustainably grown, harvested and manufactured. The interior deploys bamboo flooring, matching the look and feel of a proper hardwood floor, at greatly reduced impact to the environment.

Fulfilling its efficiency-minded ethos, this duplex features instantaneous hot water heating courtesy of 95.4% efficient propane furnace, for consistent heating savings. A heat recovery ventilator assists in providing a healthy living environment. Finally, the entire building is pre-wired for solar electric, making its future installation easier for new home owners.
