Project Description

A well-deserved National Award for this small house, that has gained the award for its excellent leadership in the low-energy field. While many houses may be looking at what Passive House design truly means, the Heights Whare is a great example of a client and a talented young designer working together with a common aim in mind.

The result is a Passive House home that fits in perfectly to the surrounding suburban environment. Considered design, together with careful and thoughtful detailing, take this home to win on a national stage in both aesthetic results and in leadership, showing the way forward.
