Reflecting the owner’s sense of flair and focus on her wellbeing; this inner Melbourne project utilises an inverse veneer construction technique. Hebel block work is placed internally where its excellent thermal qualities can provide the most benefit. The light lightweight timber is used externally to insulate and protect it from direct weather and extreme temperature changes.
Featured in Contemporary Home, Solar House Day, Museum Smart Home Initiative and Smart Water Fund, this house achieves a 65% saving in mains water consumption.
