My client's, Tim and Lee Lewis, requested a Passive Solar
ecologically friendly contemporary home in a new subdivision
at eastern Tawa in order to 'buck the trend' of standard
housing around them.
Cladding is painted textured ply with
horizontal cover battens over
framing (not common in Wellington)
and Latitude wool
(what? - more trend bucking...).
Main Kitchen/Dining/family room, Master Bedroom and west
facing Gallery area all have exposed Tung Oil sealed
insulated concrete slab floors for solar gain retention. A
precast concrete kitchen bench top to add to thermal mass
levels. The home has a heat transfer kit to transfer excess
warm air from solar heated spaces to cooler bedroom areas
and a Thermocell Modline
NZ made Solar Panel
completes the package.
