GreenSmart Sustainable Home
Winner: Valley Workshop
Nestled under the rain shadow of Mount Wellington in the wooded part of South Hobart, this challenging site required a unique and innovative solution. The entire building was prefabricated off site and flat packed creating endless design freedom. The building components are made of timber and Tasmanian hardwood ply with the floor and roof panels possessing an interlocking ply and timber grillage. The home is hyper-insulated with each wall module and roof panel containing inbuilt membranes to control condensation. The house is light filled and warm offering low carbon, low impact and happy living.
