Subiaco Sustainable Demonstration Home
From Greenlivingpedia, a wiki on green living, building and energy
The Subiaco Sustainable Demonstration Home shows that an environmentally friendly and energy efficient home can also be architecturally impressive, aesthetically pleasing and functional. The key message is that sustainable housing is relevant to any building or renovating project. The budget for the Subiaco Sustainable Demonstration Home project was comparable to other homes constructed in the area (contract building price was approximately $300,000).
The design has an emphasis on features and ideas that could be adopted by any person building or renovating their own home. The home is not only for new home builders. Features and techniques used in the home are also relevant for renovating an existing home to make it more sustainable.
