This contemporary residence is unusual in that it may be technically considered two - storey, however the composition is via an large open plan ground floor layout above an extensive three car basement level - accessed by both stairs and two person lift. The base required a 30 Tonne excavator to break through the bedrock encountered over the entire basement.
A double height lightwell which starts at the entry and continues right through the house provides a dramatic experience as you move through the house whilst adding to the ability of the home to naturally "aspirate" (draught ventilate) and thus achieve a high standard of sustainable passive design.
The location is close to heritage areas, and is part of an older subdivision so it has been designed to fit sympathetically into the neighbourhood whilst having an individual street presence.
The home being a traditional timber weatherboard construction require intensive amounts of carpentry, the main frame was constructed while in intermediate frame to the whole perimeter also was required to accommodate a 75mm foam panel, weather boards and batt packed inside stud wall to achieve a high quality of energy conservation .Other environmental features include 20,000lt water tank, energy efficient glazing and window frames, excellent upward draught ventilation to promote passive solar design and super insulating materials to absorb solar radiation during colder months.
