It all started with a tree Passive House, Thornleigh

The client’s brief to architect: “To create a family friendly, energy efficient Passivhaus providing three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an office/guest room for visiting parents using the existing Tallowwood tree as a key feature”.

About the Original Home

The owners bought the property in Thornleigh so they could build their forever home. The site for the home is tucked between a busy road and a train line. To create the tranquil oasis the owners wanted meant factoring the noise and air pollution into the design.

The original standard bricks and mortar home was not designed to meet this challenge and the existing building was quickly demolished to allow way for construction of the uniquely designed Passive House.
