Energy and water efficient fusion of heritage cottage and contemporary additions. The 1870s cottage and modern addition was home to architect John Maitland during a 16-day heatwave in March 2008. The house remained comfortable inside without any air-conditioning.  The Adelaide sustainable house’s temperature stability is achieved through integrated use of internal thermal mass, stack and cross ventilation, vertical and horizontal retractable shading and courtyard openings.

Aldinga Arts Eco Village sustainable house.  The building tilts to the north and is partially embedded in the upper slope of the site. The elements of earth mass, internal concrete walls and floors, north sun, ventilation and shading work together so efficiently that internal comfort in this house requires no additional heating or cooling. The semi-transparent conservatory on the eastern side transfers solar-warmed air into all internal spaces during winter.

The development’s site and building design, landscaping, car parks, and common/staffing facility, sit well in the surrounding neighbourhood, with an easy, integrated sense of private and public places for tenants and workers.  Twenty individual dwelling units and the common facility building were assembled offsite prefabrication near Adelaide, prior to delivery and connection on site.

Prefabrication of all buildings allowed the most energy-efficient and affordable solution, creating low maintenance living spaces which are inexpensive to heat and cool.

Contemporary renovations re-form and re-facade an old ‘Cape Cod’ house.  Three original north facing rooms are now spacious bedrooms with extended angled “nooks” protruding into the front landscape.  Living areas, study, courtyards and the rear main bedroom suite are set back to admit North sun. This reorientation increases energy efficiency and improves thermal comfort.

Recycled building materials such as warm timber accents and corrugated steel resonate echoes of the rural environment. Large north facing windows have a pergola ready for vines or blinds for summer shade. The deck floats out from the living spaces, separating the two wings, accommodating the core family unit and an aging relative.  The house is light and transparent, softly grounded on the chosen location after extensive consideration of the site.

Bold and angular new extension to an existing architecturally designed home comprising strong circular forms.  Design approach was to create form and colour to contrast with the existing; add modules that acoustically separate spaces for adults and guests from other bedrooms, using entry as a link; introduce shade and insulation and effective thermal control.  Location of outdoor living accessed from indoor living brought a direct relationship with the new forms and materials.
