Passive Design

Using a range of passive design techniques, your home can be naturally heated and cooled year-round. This reduces energy consumption and lowers greenhouse gas emissions.


These factors allow us to achieve optimal passive design:

  • Orientating buildings to capture warming sun in winter and cooling breezes in summer​

  • Shading for protection

  • Choosing layout decisions that optimise natural ventilation and lighting

  • Thermal mass

  • Creating sealed, insulated buildings for thermal and acoustic comfort

  • Ensuring optimum indoor air quality through natural and/or mechanical ventilation and low toxic materials​​
