The first house to be credited with a 10-star Homestar built rating is now open to the public in Addington, Christchurch. Developer and architectural designer Bob Burnett plans to share the design and build information with those wanting to create their own sustainable home.
The recent awarding of the country’s first 10 Homestar rating by the New Zealand Green Building Council for a new build in central Christchurch is the perfect demonstration of what’s achievable. The design of this home, particularly through its smart energy, water and waste features, shows what’s possible. This is the future of the building.
