We have lived on the site for 10 years in a…

Western Sydney custom build: solar passive

I really appreciate the effort you went to amend the design. My husband loves the reconfigured first floor. We are curious... Did the first floor expand above the alfresco?

The balcony is a contested design element from a cost perspective. The sliding panels are moveable, so could cover the doors appropriately. And the balcony depth should reduce the direct…

Thanks for that advice. Might be worth reaching out to an energy assessor.

Thanks for your feedback.
Will the 1.2m balcony and shutters on the master help reduce the impact of the western sun? This was a design feature to counter that, but…

Thanks for your reply. My building lingo is not up to speed... What build and sales history am I investigating? The architect?

Hi Guys!
In 2020, I posted a design and was interested in feedback regarding solar passive principles. Overwhelming feedback wasn't positive.
