Nothing has resonated more to us this year than the words of Gillian and Keith about their passive solar (light) house, we love their vision and the home they have created to “build green, build beautiful.”
Gillian and Keith built their home specifically to suit their lifestyle and their needs at the time. They wanted a house that was not too big but had plenty of separate guest capacity, and wanted it to fulfil sustainability, accessibility and adaptability principles.
We love that this home is a passive solar home, built to take full advantage of the northern aspect, and promotes a lifetime of thermal comfort, low energy bills and low greenhouse gas emissions.
We love that the adaptive and accessibility features allow for versatility now, and the flexibility for future changing needs.
We love the flexibility the home offers with the option to segregate it into two dwellings – the main residence and guest residence.
Love passive. Love adaptive. Love flexibility
