One of the warmest and coolest, most energy efficient homes ever designed by Bob Burnett Architecture, this home has an 8 star Homestar rating and a Lifemark 4 star rating.
The huge thermal mass keeps it an even temperature, cool in summer as well as warm in winter. Great care and thought went into eliminating any thermal bridging causing losses.
An environmentally sound timber frame home costing $300,000 that is amongst the most energy efficient houses in the NZ and one of the first 8-star Homestar rated homes. Modest, modern, modular and Earthquake Resilient the rationale was to create a model house that demonstrates building high performance homes can be achieved affordably.
This project provides a model for a new standard of housing expected to influence the Christchurch affordable housing rebuild market. Warm, dry, and healthy, energy efficient and environmentally sound. These 10 star homes demonstrate innovations and future-proof options of energy efficient environmental design.
