Wanaka Wedge House

Materials and systems for the Wedge House were selected to meet sustainability targets. A whole-house fan at the very top of the ""wedge" can evacuate heat and pull cool air from the shaded bottom courtyard. The fan was housed in a tightly sealed attic. Air exited the attic space by a weatherproof louvre on the end face of the wedge. Thermal performance exceeds New Zealand standards for a single-family house.

Nundah Apartment Block

This roof mounted fan was installed with a tiled roof on an apartment block with a shared attic space. To comply with fire regulations, the unit had a fire rated tunnel installed from the ceiling vent to the roof penetration.

This home owner did not want air conditioning for environmental reasons.

Samford, QLD

The goal with this install was to reduce reliance on air conditioning in a home nestled in bushland. A combination of adjustable floor venting was installed here to bring cool air from underfloor during the day then switching to outside air at night.

Chapel Hill, QLD

This was the prototype installed at my house. It has reduced our air conditioning use by more more than 90%.
