Aston Reshuffle reinvigorates an ex-government home in a suburban area composed of similar houses. The reconfigured home incorporates passive solar design at its core to create an open living arrangement while maximising energy efficiency and solar access. All within the existing building footprint, minimising demolition and waste, and on a tight budget.
We salvaged a house considered a prime candidate for knock-down rebuild – a significant saving in money and resources, and a reduction in materials being sent to landfill. The project demonstrates the possibilities of existing homes and smaller budgets, when vision, building science and good design are combined.
