This new home enabled a young architect to test and evaluate the best ways to create a super-sustainable and healthy home for his young family, and for other young families who share the same environmental aspirations.
Located on a small, subdivided lot facing a back lane in White Gum Valley, the design makes the most of its outlook into mature trees, with half the site given over to gardens and greenery.
Exploring #TrueNetZero pathways and options, materials were chosen for their low embodied carbon, longevity and durability, and to contribute towards a healthy indoor environment.
It’s one of the most environmentally advanced homes in Australia; the first in WA and only the third nationally to be achieve #TrueNetZero in construction.
As such, this house is much-needed proof that a net-zero future is within our reach, and that it’s readily available to homeowners at every age and stage of their lives.
