This architect designed simple house design, results in an efficiently planned and passive designed three bedroom residence with 188 sqm open plan living space and 32 sqm  of sun drenched exterior living area. The simple house design ensures a thermally efficient passive design. The well considered planning and space relationships create a simple house design that can utilise slab on ground construction or the cost effective patented prefab footing system. The generous open plan living areas of the simple house design are separated by generous sized 2400mm high clear anodised end-sliding doors from the outdoor northern alfresco. The simple house design strategically locates the living space to the northern aspect which is integral to performance as an energy efficient passive design. The simple house design has northern living space that connects and spills out onto the alfresco to encourage indoor-outdoor living embraced in the Australian lifestyle.

The simple house design and passive design are achieved on a small budget by incorporating a patented prefab footing system, solar hot water and wood fuel firebox for wood fuel boosting. Visitors to the passive house are greeted with a large 2400mm high double glazed timber pivot door and are only then ushered into the passive house’s open plan living areas. The architect designed kitchen incorporates the latest porcelain panel selections with a 1200mm wide kitchen island bench that maximises interface between the kitchen hub and adjacent living area. The simple house design features kitchen perimeter benchtops in the passive house also boasting the latest porcelain panel selections, coloured back glass and Blum Adventos lift overhead cupboards cantilevered above the benchtop height slot window.
