Adelaide House 2 – Energy Architecture

21st Century sustainable living
Alterations and contemporary additions to a traditional 1920 villa incorporate state-of-the-art sustainable design features and technologies, which include: thermal mass – concrete and rammed earth; solar evacuated tubes; hydronic in-floor heating; Climate Wizard evaporative cooling; underground cool pipes; grey water system; 60,000 litre rainwater tank; and water collecting ponds.

The beautifully crafted spiral staircase by Adelaide maker Dusko Vidovic dramatically links the above-kitchen mezzanine to the large family/living area.
