Beacon Point Road.
Registered Master Builders House of the Year 2017.
Designed with the needs of a young family in mind, the construction focuses on thermal efficiency to provide a comfortable internal environment year round with minimal heating requirements.
The combination of airtight construction, high performance insulation and heat recovery ventilation lead to a home that, once completed, should consume less than 1/2 the energy requirements of a typical new house.
The house’s V shaped footprint twists the living end of the house to create privacy from the nearby busy road while framing views to the distant South-West mountains.
A double height space above the kitchen and full height North facing window allows the sun to reach deep into the house over the winter months and a heated concrete floor will keep small toes warm.
External openings are generous and elongated to frame the wide vistas and accentuate the exterior’s vertical Cedar weatherboards.
