The architects designed this extention to a house situated in Mosman, a suburb on the Reduced North Shore of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia.
Mosman Residence by Anderson Architecture:
“The Mosman venture involved opening up the present rear half of the house to far better engage with the backyard. As the rear of the home faces north, the extension was made to capitalise on passive solar methods to reduce heating and cooling fees.
These tactics consist of north facing windows which let sunlight to pass into the home and onto the thermally huge green-concrete slab which shops heat, therefore minimizing heating fees in the course of winter. The use of sustainable, recycled and locally sourced timber and hardwoods featured throughout the project for finishes, shingles and flooring, most notably on the staircase to the 1st floor.
The extensive use of LED and minimal-watt light fittings, complimented with solar hydronic floor and water heating, which the 2 minimise the volume of electricity necessary to energy the home. The use of reduced VOC paint on the project’s steelwork for the duration of building minimised the sum of dangerous vapours launched into the environment whilst the 2.1kW photovoltaic solar panels and 32 000L of rainwater storage assist make the residence much more self-enough toward electricity and water consumption.”
