Inside Out House - Originally a standard brick-veneer house, Inside out House was clad with insulation and timber transforming into a “reverse brick veneer house”. Its outcome maintains high thermal mass which has allowed for a series of window seats to be scattered throughout the house overlooking the garden. The original glazed windows have been replaced with double glazed windows maintaining its thermal properties. Inside out house is designed for passive ventilation, where fly screens are applied to every window. The house has a heat pump system for hydronic hearing and DHW with no cooling or air-conditioning and 2.5KW solar PV array panels on the roof. Beneath the deck lie rainwater tanks plumbed to the bathrooms, laundry and garden. The pergola to living areas blocks the summer sun while allowing Northern Light to penetrate the house during Winter. Inside out house uses Australian, locally sourced materials where possible. It’s timber cladding, decking and joinery and locally sourced. The tap ware is raw brass whilst paints, stains and sealers are all low in no VOC finishes. The landscaping consists of productive gardens and fruit tress, they even have chickens. - Green Magazine.
