Join the owner, builder, architect and Passive House designer for a virtual tour of this family home in Northern Sydney.
The home is under construction and will be at rough-in stage during the tour.
The design approach follows the simplicity of Passive House with simple geometry and optimised window openings yet also challenges the conventions of window placement.
A south facing rear yard creates a tension between solar access and contemporary lifestyles yet the robust modelling of PHPP allows for confidence that south facing glass can create the connections desired without compromising comfort and performance.
A geometric facade emphasises the cubic form while a green roof and climbing landscape soften the home into its surrounds.
Constructed using a prefabricated timber frame and European windows the tour will allow you to see the inner workings and ask all those tricky questions you’ve been dying to understand about how to design and construct Passive House buildings.
