#passivesolardesign

I had a great time last Sunday at Sustainable House Day with @rhi_rhi_20 exploring @narara.ecovillage . I was particularly impressed by a project built by @livinggreendesignerhomes that had an outstanding level of craftsmanship and an exemplar passive design by @envirotecture_aus . Pictured here is the lower ground floor concrete slab performing its role as thermal mass moderated by the perfectly positioned louvre awning in front of it 😍 #ekahstudio #jasminerichardsonarchitect #sustainablehouseday2019 #passivesolardesign #concretefloorinspo #lakemacquariearchitect #lakemacquariearchitecture #newcastlearchitect #newcastlearchitecture

Arturo and Arturo working on the batten system that will support the roof panels on this ice house roof detail . . . “ice house” roofs are the type of construction which consists of an additional roof skin between the standard building envelope and the exterior environment. The roofing material is separated from the building envelope by an air space which is vented to the ambient environment. The primary objective of such construction is to drastically reduce the effects of solar loading on the building envelope. . . . #icehouseroof #passivesolardesign #carpenters #roofdetails #roofframing #passivedesign #arkintilt #mindfulbuilding #passioninourcraft #storiesofthetrade #earthtoneconstruction

Sustainable and tropical. . This house in Cairns has all the right moves. . Banks of louvres and windows on two sides ✔️ Clerestory windows ✔️ A cool breezeway between two pavilions ✔️ Views over the Coral Sea and nearby ranges ✔️ A swimming pool ✔️ A servery from the kitchen to outdoor entertaining ✔️ Bathrooms to the garden ✔️ . I could seriously move straight in, and I’m not a great lover of northern climates! . It was designed by People Oriented Design (@podcairns) for a couple who wanted a clever design that wouldn’t cost the earth. . “We are trying to counteract the trend in the sprawling suburbs where design decisions have led to a loss of nature: there is no garden for food production, you can’t plant a tree! This house demonstrates that sustainable architecture can be affordable and is accessible for average families,” says POD’s Belinda Allwood. . As the climate warms, we need more homes like this! .

The two story north end of the Instructional building houses lab spaces on both levels. There is a large vegetable garden on the roof that is accessed from fourth floor lab spaces serving the same curriculum. Following precedents set by some innovative, high-performance European buildings, the exterior is largely clad in bales of hay. That material has an extraordinary insulating value (up to R60). Since it is grown on campus as feed for the livestock that are integral to curricula offered by the college, it is virtually free and can be replaced as often as necessary- although that is not as often as you think.  Through our work, we are hoping to explore the idea of the building growing food and becoming food.

An early concept study for an academic building on a community college campus that includes instructional spaces, faculty and departmental offices. This view from the NW depicts the office building in front of the L-Shaped building that houses lab, lecture, gallery and special function spaces. Together they wrap a terraced garden court. A roof garden/lab atop the “Hay Bale” building- more on that later- is accessed from fourth floor lab spaces. A fabric roof shades an allegorical garden/ gathering space on the largest of the terraces along the building’s north edge. The architectural language is meant to express the broad range of disciplines programed to share the building. #communitycollege #collegecampus #classroombuilding #sciencelabs #synergism #fabricstructure #gardencourt #gardenlab #farmtotable #solar energy #passivesolardesign #watercycle #vegetablegarden #collegiality #artgallery #modernarchitecture #moderndesign #sustainabledesign #sustainablearchitecture #spaceplanning #programming #multifunction #flexiblebuildingdesign

With extreme weather and temperatures occurring more frequently and energy prices on the up, it's a no brainer that we reduce our reliance on energy companies. The thermal properties, known as the R-Value of our buildings can be improved by considering aspect, design, materials and even the paint. These used strategically can impact positively on energy consumption. A truly smart home would not require artificial heating or cooling, rather relying on the orientation, thermal mass and insulation of the building itself. Whether you want to increase thermal mass in your home and/or go completely off grid, BHI Builders have the expertise to guide you through your project options.

Cement slab pour! After insulating the inside of block we filled with 72 tons of gravel, buried the plumbing drains (another paid subcontractor), 2 inches of blue foam every where to isolate slab from ground and exterior, 6 mil vapor barrier, rebar, PEX tubing for future floor heat, and then Robert aka Bobby Short worked his magic! He worked in dress shirt all day and was just as clean when he finished, sign of experienced professional. Bobby was one of the few contractors I hired and was recommended by the other guys that couldn’t fit me in, I don’t think I could find anyone better and by luck got one of the best! Lesson learned, make the phone calls, ask for advice, don’t use lowball contractors, make personal connections! Every time I see him he asks if I have finished the house and he laughs when I tell him almost every time for years. #diyhomebuilding #slabpour #keepcraftalive #skilledtrades #ownerbuilthome #passivesolar #passivesolardesign #heatsink #slabongrade #meadowhousefarm

We have great pleasure in celebrating with our Client and their legal team that our proposed DA rejected by Woollahra Council was overturned by Commissioner Tim Horton in the Land & Environment Court today. . As quoted by the Commissioner “Finally, I consider the proposed development is generally consistent with the future image and function of the Paddington HCA described as being part of the desired future character of the area. The proposal seeks the removal of the non-original fabric, and the retention of parapets, chimneys, mixture of roofs and the like...... I consider the proposed development to be sympathetic contemporary design that strikes an appropriate balance between the conservation of the area’s built heritage, and the contemporary desire for amenity offered by sustainable design. . #woollahracouncil #passivesolardesign #vivalarevolution #swadpl #scottweston #paddingtonproject2017

Our beautiful home and 95 acre property is FOR SALE. On a treechange from Melbourne, we have developed this property over 15 years from a cattle farm into the most gorgeous, idyllic lifestyle property. The property sits in the Kinchington Valley with creek frontage, 5 Spring fed dams that never empty and revegetation works throughout the property. There are 2 architecturally passive solar designed North facing strawbale residences. Thick, beautiful strawbale walls and double glazed windows provide exceptional insulation and make the homes very comfortable places to live. Energy use is reduced as a consequence. There are numerous vegetable growing areas and fruit orchards are established, providing many varieties of fruit, including figs, quince, plums, citrus, nectarines, peaches, cherries, grapes, mulberries, loquats and feijoas. There are 2 large sheds, hothouse and greenhouse. Mown walking trails throughout the property with seats dotted along the way provide us with the opportunity of daily nature walks with our pooches without leaving home. Nothing beats walking to the creek and sitting there in the evening with a vino in hand, sometimes. A going concern exists in the way of growing and selling organic produce, guest accommodation, cooking classes, wine and food events and yoga retreats. This is a very beautiful and unique property. Come live the dream. Enquiries: BUR Real Estate

PASSIVE SOLAR DESIGN || ⠀ It’s no secret sustainability is becoming crucial for the future of our planet as we know it. As climate change becomes an increasing threat, what can we do as individuals to help our planet?⠀ ⠀ One of the largest contributors of greenhouse gas emissions is household energy consumption and building sustainable homes can significantly reduce our dependence on energy. Building and designing a sustainable home not only helps the planet, it’s a rewarding experience that will last even after you’ve built your home.⠀ ⠀ One of the major factors for sustainable homes is how these houses are developed through passive solar design. ⠀ ⠀ Tag a friend who is the planning stages of building a new home.
