Watch Videos of the Forever House

Inspiration for the Forever House came from a 300 year old Moonah tree which takes centre-stage in the design by Bellemo & Cat Architects. The tree being so close to the building meant that this elevation needed to comply with bushfire attack level BAL-40. Easy to achieve with the tested and compliant Paarhammer ‘Bushfire Safe Range’ windows and doors, combined with Viridian PyroGuard 40 double glazing units.

In addition to highly energy efficient windows and doors, the home has many sustainable features, including solar panels, a solar hydronic heat system, heat pumps for water, water tanks and fans. Featuring bluestone floors and concrete block walls, the house maintains a comfortable 22 deg c – no cooling needed.

The Forever House is featured in our Case Studies. See more of the excellent pictures by Peter Hyatt Photography and watch interview videos of 'Why this design' by the Architect, as well as on 'Bushfire windows' by Tony Paarhammer.
