Beautiful, Sustainable Building Design

Asquith Passivhaus

This near-complete 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 will seek passivhaus certification upon completion. It is also a pilot project in the GreenStar Homes program. The initial blower door test result was 0.30ACH50.

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