UWA CLAREMONT – Presented by JOSH BYRNE and GRIFF MORRIS
*Includes a tour of the properties on Saturday 22nd June 2013.*
This will be the first time Josh’s exciting new project will be available for public viewing. Two exemplary examples of passive solar design right next to each other with landscaping to complement the environment and temperature of the houses. Josh Byrne and Griff Morris from Solar Dwellings will present together for a 3-hour session on the Wednesday evening session (19th JUNE 2013 6-9pm) and then you will be taken on house and garden tour at Josh’s houses in Hilton on Saturday afternoon.
The houses have optimal orientation on the block, the right amount of thermal mass (learn what this means!), windows facing the right ways to allow for the houses to keep warm in winter and cool in summer naturally, or in a passive way. Plus the design allows for the occupants to use less water (find out how) and the landscape design and plant choice works with the house for optimal comfort of the occupants.
On Saturday 22nd June there will be one-hour tours at Josh’s Houses in Hilton at 1pm, 2.30pm or 4pm. Tour groups will be organised at Wednesday evening’s presentation.
