Wellington Brooklyn Non-certified, eHaus Euro, PHI Low Energy


This home is built on three levels with a workshop down below and two living areas are connected with an internal lift. Both living spaces capture amazing views over the harbour and Wellington City. The wrap around balconies bring the view even closer but also give shading especially to the western aspect. This design is very site specific and all credit to the build team who carried everything up the hill to deliver this high performance home! The client came to us at eHaus as they wanted certainty when the Wellington southerlies came through in they would be warm dry and draft free and they are thrilled with the outcome.

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.
