Saddle Hill House

"Nestled in a small saddle between twin knolls on the east Tawa skyline, this active solar home is partly dug in to avoid the southerly blast but fully exposes its Solar Rib roof to the north. The 200mroof plane will generate up to 7Kw electricity once flexible amorphous PV has been installed. Meantime, solar hot water panels will combine with a wood fired stove wetback and an electric backup element in a hot water storage tank that can feed the underfloor heating pipes on colder days. Heat from the owners’ pottery kiln is also being harnessed through a heat exchanger for warm air circulation throughout the house."
