Eco-Friendly Duplexes: Pioneering Sustainable Living
The crux of the matter lies in duplexes that are planned and designed responsibly. We believe in weaving sustainability into the very fabric of all Architecture, especially duplexes. Here’s how we go about it:
1. Passive Design: Implementing passive design principles allows us to harness natural elements like sunlight and airflow to minimise energy consumption, create comfort and enhance well-being.
2. High-Quality Insulation: By using top-tier insulation materials, we ensure optimal temperature regulation, reducing the need for constant heating or cooling. With a raft of great insulation materials & products, there are expanding opportunities to capitalise on the insulation properties of a home.
3. Energy-Efficient Systems & technology: From solar panels to energy-efficient appliances, we integrate high quality systems that drastically cut down on energy usage and increase health & comfort.
4. Air tightness- High air tightness not only enhances energy efficiency but also contributes to better indoor air quality by minimising the entry of pollutants, allergens, and outdoor contaminants, fostering a healthier and more comfortable living environment.
5. Material & fitting Selection: Options like low-VOC paints and 5 or 6-star WELS rated tap fittings. Opting for sustainable, locally sourced materials reduces environmental impact, although accessibility might pose challenges based on location & supply.
