Talina Edwards Architecture: Sustainable Homes

OWL WOODS:

“Owl Woods” is a new energy-efficient & sustainable home, aiming to be designed and built to international Passivhaus (Passive House) standards. It incorporates Passive Solar Design Principles,  is a “Just enough” house (size-wise), Highly Insulated thermal envelope, No thermal-bridging, Air-tight, Mechanical Heat Recovery Ventilation, Locally sourced materials if possible, and Australian Native Gardens.

 

HEALTHY HABITAT:

“Healthy Habitat” is an Alterations and Additions project to an existing off-grid home to make it light, bright and airy, connect to the outdoors, and be a truly healthy-home.

 

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS:

The “Best of Both Worlds” home has a lot of contrasts that we dealt with as conceptual ideas and realities: suburban/rural location, flat/hilly site, single-storey/split-level/mezzanine, public/private zone, front/back, in/out, up/down, custom/conventional build, large/small, north/south, sun/views…and so on! After deciding that the “split” house may not be the best omen for the clients’ relationships, I thought perhaps “Best of Both Worlds” might be the most appropriate name for this lovely family home!

 

HEART OF THE HOME:

“Heart of the Home” in an alterations & additions project to a modest family home. The name refers to the hub in middle of the home, the space that connects old and new, being the family kitchen. Although in it’s existing location, it is redesigned to create great views and connections to the front and rear of the home – the ultimate command centre for busy family life. The addition is simple, functional, and spacious. It is orientated for better solar gain, connection to outdoor living spaces, and views to the surround farmland.

 

REMOTE RESILIENCE:

“Remote Resilience” is a new off-grid, energy-efficient, natural and healthy home for retirement that must be bushfire-proof, resilient and adaptable. It will be a contemporary strawbale house, completely off-grid so will be self-sufficient with power, water and waste. There is a focus on it being healthy, natural, non-toxic, low embodied-energy, durable and fire-resistant materials. The design balances the integration of Passive Solar Design Principles with the site constraints and local climatic conditions – view, orientation, site slope, sun, wind and rain. It has been designed with zoning of spaces, so there is the flexibility to use half the house with independent wings.

PERMACULTURE PAVILIONS:

“Permaculture Pavilions” is located in a regional area. The client’s goal is to owner-build their ‘grand design’ dream – a contemporary sustainable home based on permaculture principles, looking at *almost* Passive House principles, and a healthy self-sufficient lifestyle. In a climate where extremes of weather are possible, this home is designed to be comfortable all year round, light and spacious, yet only a small building footprint.
