Braidwood Solar Passive House Design by Paul Dolphin of PdD Building Design with Green Homes South East NSW in Braidwood

Braidwood Solar Passive House Design

This eco house design was drafted up by PdD Building Design for Green Homes South East. The project is near Braidwood in a rural location and is a Solar Passive design. The eco design features of this building include lots of North facing glass. This is achieved through the use of a split skillion roof design which has clerestory windows. The house is off grid with standalone Solar PV and batteries and is a great example of a modern farmhouse design.

 

Nathers Star rating

It is becoming more common to gain a star rating for the sustainability of a home. This star rating is a step up from the standard BASIX certificate and involves engaging a thermal assessor. These are registered with ABSA which recently merged with the Building Designers Association of Australia.
