Hedger Constructions Project 12

This striking Thornton home by Hedger Constructions showcases an exceptionally eco-friendly design.

Upon entering the home, quality design and impeccable workmanship is instantly apparent. Every aspect of the design is site-responsive, ensuring the home blends harmoniously with the surrounding hillside.

With cohesion at the heart of the design, wooden accents are a prevalent feature throughout the interior and exterior spaces, which not only create unity within the home itself, but also ensures the residence blends seamlessly with the natural landscape. The exposed sugar gum trusses are a thoughtful addition, which is mirrored throughout multiple interior aspects.

Expansive double-glazed, floor-to-ceiling windows are a prominent feature of the living room’s design and provide sweeping scenic views of the Cathedral Ranges. Likewise, the incorporation of a double-sided Cheminees Philippe heater creates an additional point of interest that is practical yet further enhances the home’s countryside charm.

From the outset, attention to sustainability was a key component of the residence and was designed with off-grid living in mind. Inclusions such as double-glazed windows and additional insulation were imperative to achieving high efficiency levels. Similarly, the use of LPG gas for stovetop cooking and the hot water system offset the need for electrical production.

The pitch of the roof was carefully considered to allow for additional heating and cooling factors, while the eaves are similarly crucial to the home’s passive solar design. The clever positioning of the alfresco area to the west of the home provides added protection from the elements without detracting from the visual concepts of the build.

A substantial roof catchment area, combined with the addition of twin 32,000L water tanks, provides the home with a water supply that’s more than adequate for domestic needs, while the treatment plant ensures the water is safe for use.
