Creating Comfortable Feeling Spaces with a small environmental footprint

By Certified Energy's Specialist Team

The Project

Built on lower North Shore Sydney, the modern family home is a beautifully-designed, living space with cutting-edge environmental features that met BASIX (the NSW Government's Building Sustainability Index) and NatHERS (The Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme) requirements – long before it went into effect. This project demonstrates how a single dwelling can be designed with the environment in mind, providing better living standards and value for residents. It is integrated with the sloping land in split-level form to use the site most efficiently and create generous feeling spaces.

The Services

Certified Energy provided with the client a suite of consultancy services involving BASIX, NatHERS and Thermal Model. Our professionals ensured maximum savings and minimum energy use, thereby allowing for cost effective yet sustainable solutions. 

Sustainable Features

The home includes a range of sustainable design features:

  • a 6000 litres rainwater tank for garden, toilets and laundry
  • thermal comfortable external and internal walls
  • double glazed windows and doors
  • energy efficient lightings
