Open Day - Hawthorn Solar Extension

We're excited to announce we'll be hosting another Open Day at one of our projects under construction on Saturday 21st March . 

Located in Hawthorn, our Solar Extension project is a brief where 21st century building brings new life to an elegant 1890's house. The Open Day provides a great opportunity to come along and see both the design and our modular wall system while it is still exposed prior to plastering. You will be able to experience a space that Habitech can create and get an understanding of how our houses are put together.

With a crisp break between the old and the new, the design lets the environment create its minimal form. The rear extension is specifically designed to maintain northern light to the original house while maximising the efficiency of a 4.8kW PV solar array under the Melbourne sun. The extension will not only be able to generate the electricity required by the new extension itself, but most of the electricity use for the entire house!

A fun element of the design are two glass walled shower stalls that project into a semi-demolished brick courtyard out the rear of the existing house.

Come along check it out!
