This sustainable home in Trigg was designed specifically as a long term residence for a mature aged couple. The home is both comfortable and easily accessible for them, whilst still providing room for their much loved grandchildren. Universal access was a key feature of the design, not only to provide a home for the future but also so that friends and family with disabilities can visit and access the home.
Site constraints and client inclusion requirements limited north access and extended the easterly and westerly orientation.
To ensure comfortable temperatures year round, whilst reducing reliance on conditioning, windows to the east and west were minimilised, the garage and workshop have been located to provide air cells and exposed easterly and westerly walls have been upgraded to include Aircell cavity insulation.
Designed as an easy care, energy efficient home that will take this couple through their retirement years, whilst providing an inviting space for their beloved grandchildren and extended family. The kitchen is the focal point of the large open plan, light filled living area which adjoins the two outdoor cooking and alfresco areas.
