Knoxfield Sustainable Residence

The Judges were unanimous that this Knoxfield home was equally award-worthy. The client wanted a home designed for her retirement that would become a display home for educating people on the benefits of sustainable design. Her brief was to incorporate the latest technology in solar efficient design, water collection, greywater system, PV grid interactive power system, low toxicity finishes and the use of forest friendly and recycled timber products. The design is adventurous for its location and demonstrates that aesthetically pleasing building design can be environmentally sensitive.
“The owner is delighted with the performance of the home and the sustainable systems in particular,” said Andreas Sederof of Sunpower Design. “Her quality of life has been dramatically increased by the home, both spatially and by increased comfort conditions."
