‘PL1’ concept house was designed and built in 2004 as a demonstration house for contemporary passive solar house design. The house has proved the amazingly beneficial comfort of passive solar design and is a delight to live in! Orientated 8degrees off True North with 180 degree ocean views, the house is designed to collect as much radiant heat from the sun during winter as possible, and appropriate amounts during other seasons. The house is insulated with woolbatts over building regulation recommendations (R3 walls, R5 roof, R2 poly sub slab and perimeters) and has a beautiful coloured concrete floor and a ground concrete central feature ‘spine' wall - all which store heat from the sun and generally regulate temperature inside the house. It is a spacious and light 2 double bedroom home with 2 beautiful bathrooms, a wonderful double height ’nook’ room (which can be used as a guest room) and a large open plan double height office space adjacent to the clerestory roof - which brings light into the centre of the house and also provides passive ventilation for the whole house. A flat plate solar hot water panel covers most of the hot water requirements for the house and a 10 panel PV power system means the house is overall carbon neutral (all power used is offset by the power generated).
