The Wyndham home was designed on a fundamental basis of effective construction cost, energy efficiency and environmental awareness. selectNOWarchitecture on the completion of this project, achieved an energy rating of the highly sustainable architectural design of 6 stars, the best rating recognisable.
The floor area of the building has been minimized by efficient planning which eliminates passages and provides flexible multi-use of spaces. For example, the garage provides an extension to the living areas. The home is oriented and insulated to maximise natural energy efficiency, lighting and cross ventilation.
Timber has been utilized throughout the building as exposed beams and structural efficiency, fulfilling the essential requirements for sustainable architecture. Plywood cladding not only has aesthetic qualities, but provides bracing for the structure for the home with environmental advantages.
