An affordable house developed for a final land release in coastal Barwon Heads. Just 100 metres from the Barwon River, Riverwalk house is a series of gabled forms, creating a spacious home in a small footprint, maximising a central garden and open space for active boys. The project encapsulates two different building pavilions with a glass link connection. The full height windows and high pitched roof generate an enormous amount of sunlight, and creates a wonderfully liveable home that allows the client to work and live from. The house achieves an energy rating of 6.5 stars, as it is a small house achieving efficiency in construction and materials as well as reducing excessive operational energy requirement, carefully located double glazed windows throughout, allow generous light and winter sun, while maintaining protection from the heat of the summer sun.
