An Ultra Energy-Efficient Makeover Of A Victorian Country Home
We’re always inspired by sustainable design, but there’s something particularly impressive about upgrading an older home to meet modern performance standards.
This period house in Victoria’s Hepburn Shire has been reworked and extended with a new highly energy-efficient addition designed by MRTN Architects.
Energy-efficient appliances, solar panels, and a heat pump hot water system add to the property’s eco credentials, resulting in an 8 star NatHERs rating. Post-occupancy testing shows the house maintains a natural temperature between 18 and 26 degrees for 93 per cent of the year!
