The Kennett River home has been built using 10 shipping containers and has been designed to have a low carbon footprint, whilst still incorporating luxury appliances and materials. We achieved a low carbon footprint by using a mix of low embodied energy materials and new materials.
The home is almost entirely off the grid, with the exception of electricity, as it uses rain water, solar power and its own septic system. The house has been designed for passive cooling and uses only hydronic heating. The building is sited with the main living spaces and large windows facing onto the Nth-Est orientation to maximize the use of solar energy.
