Green Design Homes Project 1
A modern take on a Scandinavian barn, this simple yet spacious home was expertly designed by Green Design Homes. Featuring weather-resistant timber cladding and a durable steel roof, the exterior achieves rustic visual appeal.
At the heart of the home, the open-plan living space flows seamlessly to the kitchen and dining area. Features that further enhance the Scandinavian aesthetic include a double-sided fireplace with a space-saving wood stack, as well as a remarkable exposed-rafter ceiling, which is supported by stunning whitewashed cypress pine posts.
With a focus on optimising energy efficiency, Green Design Homes’ talented designers incorporated a number of passive design principles that improve the home’s long-term comfort and affordability. Reducing dependence on mechanical heating and cooling, the double-glazed windows take advantage of the views and valuable solar energy on the north side of the property, while also helping to reduce heat loss elsewhere in the home.
Established in 2009, Green Design Homes specialises in the design and construction of energy-efficient homes. The company completes up to 30 unique creations each year throughout the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne, as well as eastwards to the Latrobe Valley.
The team at Green Design Homes take pride in providing a genuine, personalised building experience, collaborating with their valued clients throughout the design phase, while also keeping the lines of communication open throughout the entire construction process.
With the overwhelming majority of the company’s business generated through word-of-mouth referrals and return clients, you can be confident that Green Design Homes is the smart choice for those seeking quality workmanship and energy-efficient living.
