8.1 Star Renovation/Extension, Box Hill

The client brief was to renovate/extent the existing brick home while keeping an eye on cost, recycling and sustainibility features. The extension is done as a clear contrast to the existing, compromising a concrete floor as a thermal mass, combined with recycled timber inside and sustainably harvested timber cladding on the outside.

Double glazed windows and highly efficient insulation was used in the extension and was also retrofitted throughout the existing part of the house, resulting in a highly energy efficient and sustainable house with an energy rating of 8.1 stars.
