Kestrel

Louisville, Colorado
Owner Boulder County Housing Authority
Architect Humphries Poli Architects
Green Project

Kestrel is Boulder County Housing Authority’s new 200-unit affordable housing development on a 13.4-acre site in Louisville, Colorado.  Kestrel is a highly sustainable, energy-conscious and water-smart neighborhood.  The majority of the buildings are designed as solar-ready, with low-slope roofs and sufficient structural capacity to support photovoltaic panels.  All buildings at Kestrel make use of geothermal heat-pump heating and cooling.  Using the steady temperatures found deep beneath the earth’s surface, this system is over 25% more efficient than typical heating and cooling systems.
