Garden House

 

The pavilion at the rear of this Edwardian home facing north allows the main living and kitchen areas to take advantage of the ample northern light. The black cork covered slab provides a generous thermal mass. Large timber section windows and door frames vault dramatically to the ceiling giving a frameless effect. Solar water and electricity and a 20,000 L in ground rainwater tank complement the energy efficiency of this home.

An Inner Melbourne Edwardian-era family home has been redesigned to celebrate and channel the sun and seasons into a changing and ingenious solar marvel.
