By Certified Energy's Specialist Team
Built near Burnswick River on the NSW north coast, 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.
Certified Energy provided with the client a suite of consultancy services involving BASIX, NatHERS and Thermal Comfort Simulation. Our professionals ensured maximum savings and minimum energy use, thereby allowing for cost effective yet sustainable solutions.
The home includes a range of sustainable design features:
Tallowood Ridge Residence is a single dwelling house, which uses sustainable design principles such as those embedded in BASIX and NatHERS from the beginning of the project to achieve a more comfortable living space for residents, whilst minimising its environmental impact.
Net Zero Design
Natural, low-/non-toxic materials and finishes and ventilated, breathable construction create a healthy living environment with minimised condensation risk.
