The Pakawau is a smart 2 Bedroom passive solar home featuring internal adobe feature walls for added thermal mass and all the other benefits of natural earth like humidity regulation and air borne toxin neutralisation.
Cladding of the home is textured plywood with band-sawn timber cover battens to create a board and batten effect. The home is insulated with natural wool and the concrete slab is insulated. The windows are double glazed with Low E coating.
The living space features glazed patio doors facing east for sea views and north to capture the suns warmth. The vaulted pitched ceiling area has high level clerestory windows to allow sunshine to irradiate the adobe thermal walls and to gain extra natural light in the home.
The Master bedroom also features an adobe wall and smaller clerestory windows for solar gain. The east patio features a transparent polycarbonate pergola roof.
Two bedrooms each with a bathroom, large open plan light living spaces and two outdoor patio areas all within a modest size footprint and for an affordable cost.
