Kapiti Takahe Non-certified, eHaus Euro, PHI Low Energy


Nestled in a scenic reserve with stunning views of Kapiti Island this three bedroom home is a  dream. The owners had a clear vision of the finished design from the outset with a comprehensive brief. eHaus partnered with them to deliver a quiet, high performance home that offers framed views, plenty of storage, spacious access and privacy.


"Working together between the design and the builder and ourselves, very tightly together, I think has been the right way to go. In winter I come back from work in the early evening and the house is obviously very warm and comfortable, and that’s the heat from the solar energy that came in during the day."

— Robin Gunston

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.
