The Pacific Pinnacle Eco Home – Awarded 2017 HIA GreenSmart Sustainable Home Winner
HIA Australian GreenSmart Awards recognise the best in environmentally-responsible housing. In congratulating the winners, HIA Managing Director Shane Goodwin said the Award winners have reached the pinnacle of sustainable building practices and are leading the industry in providing comfortable homes for their clients.
The brief was to design a timeless forever that enhanced the relaxed lifestyle of the Gold Coast Hinterland and proximity to the coastline. A 6 star NatHERS energy rating as a result of smart solar passive design, the house captures gentle sea breezes and warm natural sun rays all year long. Constructed, slab on ground, zero VOC sealed and finished with beautiful 220mm Oak floors with E1 formaldehyde content the sustainable attributes of the home start from the ground up. Crafted Marble bench tops, shaker style cabinetry, locally sourced rustic timber beams, feature glass floors and dramatic high ceilings mean style is not compromised in the pursuit of environmentally minded excellence. Actively in depth consultation with the client, sourcing material from local suppliers and using local tradesmen meant the building phase, as well as the finished product, were as carbon-friendly as possible and further benefited through the installation of a 15kW Photo-voltaic system.
“Optimum orientation, taking advantage of the natural surrounds and creating resort style living were all design considerations for this ostentatious home in the hinterland on the Gold Coast. The spacious breezeway linked design is emphasised by the natural timber decks and glistening lagoon swimming pool that surround the home. This home showcases products and materials from companies who are sustainably conscious and committed to making a difference in today’s built environment said managing Director Jeremy Magee”
