This experimental family home and architectural design studio has an ongoing research component involving the thermal tracking and data recording of passive and active solar performance throughout the house and the basement rock bin. Fan assisted solar harvesting is a feature of the winter operation and automated natural ventilation maintains summer temperatures within a narrow comfort band. Ventpac systems are by Solarhomes which is a low energy technology company sharing the Solar Home studio with Aonui Architecture Ltd.


Data and experience gained by these two Wellington based companies is used in a range of projects throughout New Zealand and the Pacific. Refer www.aonui.co.nz and www.solarhomes.co.nz.
