Hawkes Bay Tukituki Non-certified, eHaus Euro, Passive House Classic


Nestled in the heart of the Tukituki valley sitting on a vantage point is this beautiful home. To ensure the home takes advantage of the surrounding landscape  incorporated into the design are two elevated covered decks on the east and west, these give access to the local vista and offer that all important alfresco dining. The decks are accessed via  high performance window joinery that ensures the performance of the home is optimal whilst ensuring great indoor outdoor flow.

Extraordinary heat energy savings.

Every one of our projects are energy modelled using the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP). It's through this powerfully clever tool that we can accurately calculate just how much heat energy every eHaus will save when compared to a similarly- sized typical new home, built in the same climate region.

This project is making significant carbon savings for a better environment.

We believe that our homes should have a big impact on the way we live, but little impact on the land. We've calculated the amount of carbon our homes have saved through energy efficiency from move in day 'til now. At their core, eHaus' are built with the elimination of carbon emissions in mind - so we're not only creating healthy, comfy & high performing homes, but spaces that don't cost the earth.
