Commendation Residential Design: New House $300K-600K construction cost

Designer: Beaumont Concepts
Builder: TS Constructions
Photographer: Warren Reed and Leo Edwards
Location: Cape Paterson, VIC

This project promotes harmony with the natural coastal surrounds, and addresses sustainability from construction to consumption of resources over the lifecycle of the home. The compact, cost-effective home successfully responds to constraints of the site. It sits comfortably within the site and actively benefits from it, with passive solar principles and energy-efficiency and environmentally-conscious provision of recycled thermal mass. CORE 9 aspires to support an industry change from a legacy of poorly-constructed and socially-isolated housing to become the pinnacle of sustainable design and people-oriented homes.
