100% Solar-Powered Great Barrier House Fuses Modern Technology With Island Life
Elevated to protect against floods and constructed of sustainably-sourced timber that references the island’s rich biodiversity, the Great Barrier House is comfortable in both summer and winter. Despite its open plan, low E glass ensures decent insulation even as the air temperature drops outside. To date the client has only needed to use their fireplace to generate ambience as they have felt warm enough.
For a peak at another exciting but wholesome house, check out Crosson, Clarke and Carnachan’s Whanapoua Sled House.
