Modern architecture in a rural setting makes this eHaus stand out. It is a beautifully finished family home that provides space for everyone. With three bedrooms, two bathrooms, office, separate living/media, wet room and even a pet room. This home is designed for the whole family to enjoy all the country offers. In addition, it also has an attached annex (self-contained flat) with an en-suited bedroom for visitors. The Design brief was simple - "we want it to look like renovated, early-NZ stables" – hence the shape of building with three barns joined together. Pioneer red was chosen as an accent colour to take it back to traditional roots. This property faces North-East, to give views over paddocks, horses and foals on the property, the windows and doors in the open plan living area have been designed to frame these views. The client also wanted an easy care finish with low maintenance.
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.
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.
