Mac Architecture, established by Certified Passive House Designer Jason Macquet, designs energy-efficient custom homes that are sustainable, comfortable, and built to last. Our focus is on new buildings seeking high performance and PassivHaus certification.
Building a custom home is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Our smaller studio size enables us to work closely with our clients throughout the design process. This leads to better design which responds to the site and exceeds our client’s expectations.
Mac Architecture believes a home’s primary function is to provide a warm, dry, and healthy space for our families. That is why we are proud to partner with eHaus make high performance homes more accessible and change the way we live in their homes."

Intrinsic to the rural setting, Kahutara Houses' staggered form reflects the shearing quarters and long run corrugate sheds that scatter the surrounding farmland.
Designed to the eHaus Pacific standard, Kahutara house uses SIPS for Structural integrity and thermal performance. Deep awning roofs inspired by farmhouse verandas avoid internal overheating and enable functional sheltered outdoor spaces, year round. Celestoral windows capture high morning light and casts it down into the open plan living space while high level ceilings offer grandeur and spaciousness.View Project
