Where they never have troubles, at least very few...
As the first of the Positive Footprints 9 star series to be constructed, Solar Sollew was envisioned as a synthesis of our experience in practical cost effect sustainable design & construction, to produce a truly low impact mainstream offering.
The scope of works was for a 9 star, highly energy & water efficient, 3-4 bedroom family home with ground living and master suite, achieving at least a Gold level in the Living Design Guidelines, providing housing flexibility for the homeowners as they progress through the various stages of
home life, with flowing spaces and wheelchair accessability to the ground floor.
Materials throughout were sourced for their environmental and health credentials and made features in the internal fitout.
New cutting edge sustainable technologies were also included:
Landscaping was designed to showcase water efficient food production in the suburbs, mixed with indigenous plantings to increase original habitat.
In summation, the Solar Sollew is an holistic example of modern sustainable living.
