The Project

Designed by Unicorn Architecture (Daylesford), the New Cottage was designed and engineered to meet the stringent Passive House standard. Grün provided Passvhaus advice and modelling to ensure optimised outcomes for client comfort and efficiency. Carefully crafted by Aphi Projects, the design, development and construction incorporates comprehensive building science and technology essential to the success of Passive House buildings.

Whilst not officially Passive House certified, it does offer the familiar thermal performance characteristics of Passive House buildings. Completed in early 2017 it is a combination of simplicity in design and high-quality construction.
