Chingford Park Passive House

413 North Road, North East Valley, Dunedin, New Zealand
411 North Road Dunedin Otago 9010 NZ

The brief for this project was to design a modest, traditional looking passive house cottage for a retiring King’s Council. Following traditional building design this brief suggested a compact building form and the use of traditional timber shutters for sun control.

The floor plan for this house is almost a square. The lower level contains kitchen, living, dining as well as a bedroom/office guest bathroom and walk-in pantry. The upper level contains two generous bedrooms with raking ceilings and dedicated bathrooms.

The house is timber framed on an insulated concrete floor slab.

WD Homes achieved achieved a blower door test result of 0.1 ACH which is the best blower door result ever recorded in NZ.
