Where Inspiration Meets Action

Alnoba is New England’s premiere destination for corporate retreats, leadership development, wellness programs, and special events. Opened in the fall of 2016, Alnoba is a Passive House Standard-certified and built to reduce energy usage by 75%-90%. It is designed as a model for unrivaled environmental stewardship. Preservation Timber, a small, Maine-based company specializing in rescuing and restoring New England barns, provided the building’s 17th-century restored timber frames.

Passive House architects and engineers at G-O Logic created a high-performance building that employs superinsulation, passive solar technology, and electric and geothermal systems, resulting in a grid-tied, net-zero-energy building (that is, ultra-low energy requiring little energy for heating or cooling). Alnoba is built to be the first Passive House gathering center in the Northest.

The power of art to awaken and transform is celebrated throughout the building and property. Sculptures and stonework are displayed throughout the woods and fields, creating an outdoor experiential work of art.

All proceeds from Alnoba support programming for Seacoast and Boston youth and nonprofits.
