Caladenia Street House by Strine Environments
The Caladenia Street House was designed in response to climate change effects, including increased temperatures and frequency of heat wave conditions, but deals with these impacts differently from the typical installation and use of air conditioning units.
- Correct orientation to suit the micro-climate of the site
- Ultra Mass Walls and slab with high insulation and thermal isolation. Walls fabricated offsite to reduce waste and increase sustainability.
- Double glazing
- High windows for release of warm air in summer
We are listed in the Single Dwelling category of the 2014 BPN Sustainability Awards.
Our highly insulated thermal house with northern glazing that disappears into the landscape
Based on the timeless Millennium Design, this beautiful house uses our highly insulated Thermal Panels, slab, northern glazing and fans to achieve minimal heating and no cooling is necessary. As the planting matures the house will disappear into the landscape.
”Thermal mass significantly reduces energy usage in residential buildings and provides the ability to maintain a comfortable internal temperature in a house with no mechanical cooling and minimal mechanical heating.Ric ButtStrine Environments
