Beautiful, Sustainable Building Design

Asquith Passivhaus

This family home is a pure expression of high-performance design. A street-to-north orientation will see the front yard dominated by food producing raised garden beds in front of an optimised fa├žade that captures just enough solar heat for winter warmth.

The photovoltaics cover the entire north roof, again, sized perfectly to maximise electricity production for both home and (future) vehicle, plus some extra for giving back.

 

Project Details

A green roof over the garage will provide a beautiful outlook from the second living space while also providing a home for beehives and a native garden.

The home is the first certified Passive House Premium building in NSW. It is also a pilot project in the GreenStar Homes program. The blower door test result was 0.35ACH50.

The thermal envelope is a prefabricated panelised system from Carbonlite. It was erected in three days, as seen in the time lapse video below.

The home is participating in Sustainable House Day 2021 and our wonderful client has made a video tour of the home
