This house, the dream of its energetic and creative owner, was intended to be both beautiful and highly energy efficient. The structure is a MaxRaft foundation, timber frame walls with R4, the windows are wooden frame triple glazed by Eurotech, the roof is timber frame with R6 and there is a MHRV ventilation system and a air-to-water heat pump. Airtightness is provided by Pro Clima intelligent membranes. The design was modelled in PHPP and details were modelled in Therm. It was a pleasure to help the client realise her unique vision for the house and her character shines out of every detail. Here are a few pictures, courtesy of Alpine Image Co. House design is by Hiberna Architecture. Built by Alternative Ventures Ltd, Queenstown.
