2021 HIA Australian GreenSmart Sustainable Home Solaire Properties

2021 HIA Australian GreenSmart Sustainable Home

Winner: Solaire Properties, Queensland

To future-proof against climate change, this Brisbane home built by Solaire Properties dramatically minimises its carbon footprint. It also maximises energy efficiency and comfort through Passive House certification.

Utilising a combination of high-performance triple glazing, superior insulation, and an airtight building envelope, this home enjoys internal humidity and temperature levels that only a Passive House can deliver.

Advanced air-conditioning and a ventilation system provides temperature controlled, pollen-filtered air throughout the home. The residence also features a 10 kW solar array, 28Kws of Redback battery onsite storage, and a variety of sustainable materials, making this a luxurious smart-home in sub-tropical Brisbane.

HIA GreenSmart Awards recognise the talent environmentally-aware HIA members. The awards recognise those who build or design environmentally-friendly homes, provide solutions to make homes more efficient or create new products for the building industry.

Solaire Properties were recognised as the winner virtually in front of a national audience when the 2021 HIA Australian GreenSmart Award winners were revealed on 14 September.

GreenSmart Sustainable Home is presented to the housing project (single or multi dwelling) that best incorporates cost-effective environmental performance and operational principles to its design and construction.

Solaire Properties won the 2020 HIA Queensland region GreenSmart Sustainable Home category.
