Hawthorn "Contemporary Farm" House

Website

Designed for a couple from the UK who love New Zealand and are keen to embrace the principles of Passive House design. A close working relationship with both James and Jane created a team approach from the beginning. Jane Crill grew up in a farm house in Jersey, hence this was an aesthetic she loved. The driveway for the house will enter via an avenue of trees to bring you under a Porte Corche into the traditional courtyard.

The main entry to the house opens onto a large sunny external dining room with the living "barn" to the right, and the family/sleeping two story barn to the left. The house employs high levels of insulation combined with Proclima Intello Wrap for airtightness, and triple glazed windows imported directly from the Czech Republic.

The pre-lining blower door test has achieved a score of 0.28 ACH under a pressure of 50 pascalls. This is currently the best reading for air-tightness in New Zealand - well below the Passive House criteria of 0.6 ACH at 50 pascals.
