Abbotsford - 2011
Twenty4, designed to the client requirements of a sustainable home that should use recycled materials where possible to create a low impact home on the site. The end result is not just a 7.5 + Star home but a home that has re-used a lot of the materials from the original home on the site & also other reclaimed materials from second hand shops sourced locally to the project.
The northern/eastern orientation maximises the solar access to the home and allows for cross flow ventilation by capturing natural breezes and circulating them through the home by use of ceiling fans. Internal concrete mass stone clad walls soak in winter thermal heat & distribute it throughout the home of an evening.
