International Passive House Open Day 2022 
Australian Passivhaus tours


The open days are a great opportunity to learn about the benefits of Passive House (Passivhaus) and learn first-hand what it’s like to live in one.

Passivhaus projects are opening up their doors across the world THIS WEEKEND Fri 24th – Sun 26th June.

Some open houses and buildings will have owners and/or passivhaus professionals there to answer any of your questions.

These events are hosted by APHA in partnership with IPHA.

Register to visit here. All events are free to anyone who would like to attend!


Victorian Open Events:

Hutt 01 PassivHaus Sunday 26th June

Hutt PassivHaus has not only been showcased on Grand Designs Australia, but it is also designed to be a Show Case home in itself. We love the idea of net zero energy homes, and we are always trying to convince everyone that that is the way into the future, so this was a great opportunity to show one.

The home is a passive house with lots and lots of experimental and exciting features, from the eco garden aquaponics system via CLT structure, wood fibre insulation, HRV, useable attic floors, green wall and more, up to a green roof and an (almost) off-the-grid-electricity system with Solar PV and batteries. All built on an unbelievable block – a forgotten 250 sqm piece of land wedged between a trainline and a bluestone laneway. So exciting!

Construction is finished, Certificate of Occupation has been received. PH Premium Certification is in progress.

There are also projects open in other states across Australia (and all across the world!) so check the map (we believe it is still being updated with information about this weekend’s events) if you live elsewhere to find somewhere close to you!

None of our projects are opening up this time round, but as we have a number of Passivhaus projects currently under construction, we hope that they will open up their doors later this year!
