Based on the principles of European Passive House design, the home is constructed without traditional wooden frames. Instead SIPform
pre-fabricated SIPS (structural insulated panels) provide speed of erection with built-in insulation for energy savings in both summer and winter. Levels of thermal comfort are enhanced through maintaining an airtight house, limiting draughts that usually affect a home’s internal temperature. Double-glazed windows offer additional thermal performance as does the extensive insulation in roof, walls and under floors.
A heat recovery system provides clean, fresh-filtered air throughout the house eliminating toxins and carbon monoxide while retaining 90% of the warmth, or coolth, created inside. This system of superior air quality is especially important for sufferers of health conditions such as asthma or allergies to pollen or dust mites. It also eliminates condensation and mould.
Landscaping, while still immature, is planted with water-conserving plants including those native to the local area. A 3000-litre tank provides water for toilets, the laundry and the garden.
A north-westerly aspect allows an abundance of light to enter the generously sized living areas. The floor plan features a light and spacious central living space including the kitchen with Essastone benchtops, stainless-steel appliances, matt-finished joinery, butler’s pantry and laundry; a dining room opening to the external covered patio, and a large living room with reading nook. 2.65-metre high ceilings, white walls and timber floors, provide a sense of spaciousness and calm.
