Illustrations of recent 5cSBD Passivhaus Projects

Experience from my Passivhaus designs ilustrated below has shown that the comfort, health and low energy benefits can be achieved cost effectively in a variety of Australian climate zones. They generally use about a tenth of the heating energy of standard construction which allows them to be energy positive (Passive House Plus) with a small pv array. I now cannot justify providing anything less than Passive House designs.

For a 90 second video explaining Passivhaus click here to go to the APHA website. For more technical details go to the "Experience from PH Projects" and the other tabs on this website.
