• Bribie Island House

    Built in 2002 by an engineer, this home was unusual in its canal estate placement at the time. Designed using passive solar design principles and to be energy conscious, it was also energy producing, generating wind as well as solar power. The rammed earth provided thermal mass, and the clerestorey windows allowed sunlight to heat the central walls at appropriate times of the year, but the design excluded it at other times (using the angle of the sun).  Electric blinds shaded the large glass windows when necessary, and a vergola opening roof sheltered the central courtyard between the two wings of the house.
