The Zero Carbon Home designed by Energy Aspect Living has surged strongly during the past two days in the People's Choice voting for South Australia's pioneering Zero Carbon Challenge.
Energy Aspect Living has recruited a team of creative SA businesses, including iconoclastic cartoonist and architect Ross Bateup, to set a new standard in sustainable housing design. Energy Aspect Living’s Zero Carbon Home design is on display in the State Library of SA as part of the Zero Carbon Challenge People’s Choice contest. You can vote for the design either online or at the State Library until February 26.
The Team Energy Aspect Living design is currently second in the People's Choice voting on Facebook. You can vote for Team Energy Aspect Living online via Facebook at http://vote.zch.com.au or casting your ballot at the SA State Library on the corner of North Terrace and Kintore Avenue, Adelaide.
The Zero Carbon Challenge winner will be announced next week, on Wednesday, February 29.
Backed by Land Management Corporation and the Integrated Design Commission, the Zero Carbon Challenge challenges SA’s building industry to aim for “zero carbon” construction. The goal was to design a $300,000, three-bedroom home that minimises the environmental impact from embodied and operating energy during the 50-year life of the building
Energy Aspect Living has adopted a practical, performance-orientated approach to the Zero Carbon Challenge, which means that its design is achievable in construction. Its Zero Carbon Home embraces nature, with a space-efficient design that takes advantage of free solar energy and refreshing breezes. Spacious openings capture and store the warmth of the winter sun to radiate at night while shading and a breezeway garden cool the air to make air conditioning redundant in summer
Energy Aspect Living's Zero Carbon Home design evolved from a team effort with expertise from Energy Aspect Living, Bateup Urban Design and JPE Studo."
