This family home in Mt Eden, Auckland had a specific goal to gain a 10 star Homestar rating.
Also important was that no space heating would be required during an normal winter. The use of Low E Excell and Soundstop glazing helped achieve the thermal and sound insulation required for this. The home now has double the code level of insulation. Both Tilt and Slide windows and Bifold doors were utilised to give both functional ventilation and access.
