THE BEACHSIDE HOME WITH A LIVING ROOF, BUILT IN SIX WEEKS
THE SYDNEY BEACHSIDE suburb of Avalon has a new eco-friendly living green-roofed home – and it was built in a remarkable six weeks.
Designed by Archiblox, prefabricated offsite and then trucked in, the home is a cosy 106sqm in size, has two bedrooms, one bathroom and an open plan kitchen, dining and living space.
There’s a veranda on the south and east facades and the green roof minimises rainwater run off and insulates the home from the heat of the Summer sun. The exterior timbers are FSC certified and come from sustainable forests.
The home has been built on a sloping site and is elevated from the ground on structural posts.
