Thermal Efficiency in a Larger Home
After a distinguished career in the Australian Army, our clients wanted a home that accommodated them and their collection of furniture and memorabilia in a way that would match their new lifestyle. Their expansive home offers superb rural views, provides for formal and informal living and offers a level of energy efficiency and sustainability uncommon in houses of this kind.
Retiring from an extensive and successful career in the Australian Defence Force, our Clients looked to return to North East Victoria to be near family and friends in their retirement.
Our Clients were able to purchase a large block in an established estate that overlooked the Ovens River on the Northern boundary. This was an important first step as it provided potential for including solar passive design principles in the design.
A lifetime in the service of the Australian Army had meant constant relocations. After a life of living in other people’s house’s, the clients brief to designer Tracey Toohey was detailed. This was their chance to have a house that accommodated them, their family, their collection of furniture and memorabilia in a way that would match their intended lifestyle.
