The owners worked closely with their Designer and Builder to create a home that is not only award winning for its sustainability and eco-friendly design, but provides a sense of calm in every corner of this stunning home. As this home provides so many features, in both design and sustainable concepts we have prepared a Memorandum of Information on “Wakarara”

A recent article in the National Sustainable House day explains the back ground from concept to construction.
Building designer Ross Campbell ensured the home responded to the potential climate of hot summers, frosty winters, chilly winds and frequent mist and drizzle, setting it back from the edge of the escarpment. Two long wings of single-room-depth maximise northern aspect while providing separation between the main home and secondary wing. Low-e glass was used strategically, in combination with thermal mass, additional insulation and internal blinds. Double doors enable the house to be compartmentalised for privacy and thermal efficiency. An outdoor room with openable glazing on two sides make the space usable year-round. A north-facing pergola with deciduous vines complements this space, providing an alternative outdoor area close to the kitchen while improving solar control for the house.
