Sustainability, Clever Wood Solution
This 4 bedroom urban family home was designed with a specific focus on long term liveability and healthy and sustainable living.
Naturally, timber is used throughout. The home features Douglas Fir frames, Lawsons Cypress Weatherboards and Interior doors, Pinus Radiata laminated timber midfloor and Plywood I-beams, Cedar Barge Boards, and Eucalyptus Saligna timber overlay floor, window joinery and kitchen. In nearly every instance the wood has been oiled, rather than painted, to give the home a warm, natural feel throughout.
It was designed to make maximal use of the natural resources available to heat and cool the home, high thermal mass materials to reduce heating and cooling requirements and is also fitted with Solar Hot Water and Photovoltaic energy collectors as well as rain water capture and filtering for potable use.
