“After learning the principles for Passive House, I knew there was incredible opportunity to make a real difference to the way buildings are both conceived and constructed in New Zealand. Passive House principles could really affect the lives of many New Zealanders living in poor standard housing, and suffering as a consequence. To adopt even the smallest change could make a huge difference to the quality of people’s lives, and dramatically reduce energy usage of our country” – Siân Taylor

This amazing home sits south west over the coastal view. The architects had to solve the issue of being able to enjoy the vista while enabling some shelter from the prevailing winds.
Super insulation was used along with Triple argon filled low-E coated glazing necessary for the climate this far south. European windows by ecoWindows in wood and aluminium also feature.
This grid tied photo-voltiaic home is perfect for this progressive family, often generating more energy than it uses.View Project
