'Birds on a Wire' , Inverell

This was a home designed to meet current and future needs of a family.  The ability to have open space for living but also the ability to close up the kids sleep and play areas when they leave home!  It also allows for a home based business. Passive solar design was a big aspect in positioning and designing the layout of this home.  It allows for maximum direct sun in winter to warm the home, but shading in summer to help cool the house along with well placed windows & louvers to help cross flow ventilation.  A distinct modern home with an easy living feel.  Hydronic in-slab heating, Polished concrete flooring, low-e glass, first class insulation, impressive low-e lighting.  This home proves the theories & benefits of passive design!
