PassivHaus design and construction

Redefining the way we live using Passive House principles

Every eHaus is designed and constructed using the International Passive House design software. Measured proven performance to live by for a healthy, comfortable, all year round lifestyle. This is what sets us apart in our industry.

At eHaus we believe that it’s our collective responsibility to take care of the environment without sacrificing the comforts of your family’s everyday life. That’s why we work one-on-one with you to design and build your eHaus, creating a home that consumes 75 – 90 percent less heating energy while providing healthier and more comfortable living spaces.


Smart design keeps New Zealand beautiful

It’s the middle of winter. Outside it’s 10 degrees, but inside it’s 23 degrees. There is no heating system. Magic? No, just eHaus.

At eHaus, we make it our priority to build houses especially designed to give your family the best health, comfort and happiness at a fraction of the energy.

Featured Project:

Dunedin High Street 

Co-housing project

In 2013 the Urban Co-housing Otepoti was formed, and over the past 6 years the group have developed and refined their ideas and requirements into an economically viable, energy efficient co-housing development project. The group purchased a 5,000 sqm site that was the former High Street Primary School and in November 2018, eHaus Otago commenced construction. The project will be New Zealand’s second largest co-housing development, with 22 Passive House homes being built.

Three reasons why your new home should be an eHaus


Less Energy, More Savings

eHaus requires only 15-25 kilowatt-hours per square meter to heat your home for a whole year. That's 75-90% less than the average Kiwi home! Smart design keeps New Zealand beautiful while giving you significant power savings every month.


More Comfort, Better Health

Welcome to indoor bliss - no more sweating in the summer and freezing in the winter. Every room in eHaus is always between 20 and 25 degrees and is scientifically guaranteed to be mould free, a place where your family can thrive.


Design Better, Build Smarter

eHaus’ intelligent construction meets the Passive House standard, the most advanced energy efficiency standard in the world. We challenge what it means to design and build a house because we know there’s a better way to live.
