The Hill Plains House – IDEA 2020

The Hill Plains House

Awarded a 6 star green star rating, the house incorporates passive design principles including good solar orientation to maximise winter solar gain and avoid exposure to high summer sun. All timber waste from construction has been retained for use in the wood-fired boiler. The house is completely off the grid. Rainwater is collected and filtered onsite, and a multi-zone hot water tank is shared with solar hot water and woodfired hydronic heating. Interior materials including brickwork and timber are all recycled.
