This house goes far beyond the typical box-ticking exercise of current rating systems for residential housing. The house has been designed using passive design principles including careful orientation, appropriate shading devices, significant use of insulation, the use of thermal mass and extensive cross ventilation.
A majority of the houses structure and cladding has been prefabricated offsite to reduce material waste during construction Edible gardens have been planted and maintained for the occupants use and the house has been designed using living in place principles allowing the owners to live in and maintain their independence as they age with the house.
