Combining passive design with innovative construction methods modelled specifically for the Western Australian climate ensures this home is not only sustainable, has net positive energy use, low carbon footprint but most importantly maintains a healthy and ambient living environment for the homeowners for many years into the future.
This particular home also proves the versatility of building a passive home. The original design was conceived by the client with very minimal changes made by the design team. The home was then built to what the client thought was passive principles. It was only after the completion of the home that they were made aware that the home was indeed a Certified Passive Plus home. This is further proof that building ‘better’ does not need to be more difficult, just better understood and executed.
With open-plan living, theatre room, raking ceilings and an elevated walkway between the upstairs bedrooms, this house embraces all the required elements of a passive home.
