21 Bridgewater

GH21 a sustainable home designed by GOODHOUSE architecture.


This build was a great example of how the site determines house design and layout. The tricky orientation, slope, soil type, bushfire assessment and council stormwater requirements added a new level of complexity. A clever design backed by our experienced team at AZTEC have managed to tackle the complications and bring this quality build together.   

Now complete the house sits beautifully in the landscape. Owners Fiona and Nick are enjoying all the benefits of living in a sustainable home. Whilst solar access is compromised due to the site conditions, there is still plenty of winter sun finding its way into the home. Winter thermal comfort is guaranteed with hydronic underfloor heating. While natural cross and stack ventilation and ceiling fans take care of any cooling required in summer. The wastewater system is providing irrigation to the whole garden, with the house running completely on rainwater.
