Beautiful, Sustainable Building Design

‘It’s honest beauty’: the net-zero homes paving the way for the future

Posted by admin on 30/05/2024 at 10:16 am

Thanks so much to Maddie Thomas for interviewing our Director Talina about our Envirotecture Huff’n’Puff Haus for an article about net-zero homes in the Guardian Australia.
The project has won many awards since its completion and is shortlisted in the sustainability category in the House awards. But for Edwards, it is not about accolades. “Everyone kept saying, it’s so beautiful… but it’s not about what it looks like,” she says. “… The beauty of it is beyond skin deep. What’s hidden behind? What’s the true heart of what this is doing?.. It’s honest beauty, not just considering the aesthetics.”
Talina would like to add that ‘what you can’t see’ is not just about the reduced carbon-footprint, but also about the healthy indoor environment for occupants which the Certified Passivhaus standard delivers, and the biophilic design which helps with mental wellbeing… this home is nature-aligned architecture; caring for people and planet.
