This home is open for pre-booked tours only, the address will not be displayed.  

Currently under construction, the 10 Star Home was designed to demonstrate the possibilities of sustainable residential design and construction in South Australia. As SA’s first 10 Star home, our hope is that we demonstrate and assess the following:

  • design and construction costs
  • predicted vs actual energy efficiency
  • thermal comfort performance
  • air tightness
  • home automation technologies to support energy efficiency
  • heat recovery ventilation

10 Star Home is an active construction site, you will need to wear sturdy closed toe shoes and undertake the digital safety induction to attend the site. Timeslots will be allocated through a booking service. Designed by SUHO and built by Woolcock Construction. For more information contact studio@suho.com.au or visit www.10starhome.com.au to take a virtual tour.  

This house achieved a NatHERS rating of 10 stars using NatHERS accredited software (AccuRate). Find out how the star ratings work on the Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) website.
