Passive Solar & Environmentally Sustainable Design…

Environmental and holistic considerations of overall design and construction…

Alt950 - Environmental Consideration

Before designing a home Altitude 950 looks at the environment in which it will be built. To be sustainable, a house first uses the natural features of the land and the path of the sun.

Elements used for Gilead

Capturing the heat from the winter sun with a rock feature wall, allowing a cooling breeze through living areas, using existing trees to provide a shady outdoor living area are all examples of the way we make use of the house’s environment.

Client Considerations

The sustainability we add to your home’s design not only helps the environment but also makes your home more enjoyable to live in. It will save you money on heating, air conditioning and lighting costs and enable you to achieve a higher resale value.

The same environmental care we show in our design process we also show in our building process by using responsible site management processes, recycled building materials and minimising waste. Sustainable design to us is a home that sits well with its environment.

No design works unless it embodies ideas that are held common by the people for whom the object is intended.
