Hybrid: Richard Eden, Nelson

Hybrid Homes and Living Ltd is focused on designing and building great looking, warm and energy efficient sustainable homes.

We have been building homes that use passive solar design principles, thermally broken joinery, double glazing with low E, up-rated wool insulation and water and energy efficient appliances to create wonderful homes that are kind on the owners and the environment.

Jamie Harrington, Owner, Hybrid Homes & Living Ltd says, ''This is a great looking and functioning house. It was designed to be warm, energy efficient and kind on the environment, and we are pleased the HomeStar Rating of 7 endorses that we have delivered on that design.”

Summary of the key features:

  • Energy efficient lighting
  • Energy efficient appliances (ie. heated towel rails)
  • Solar hot water system
  • Pre-wired for Solar PV
  • Louvre system – can be sun or shade and waterproof
  • WELS rated water efficient taps/showers
  • WELS rated dishwasher
  • Biolytix Wastewater system – using grey water in the garden
  • Construction waste was recycled during the building process – we had our own recycle bins on site for construction waste – untreated timber, plastic, etc.
  • Minimised site impact – it was a straight forward site, so we maximized the positioning for the sun profile.
