MyKiwiHouse is combining the best practises from Europe and New Zealand into a smart and sustainable home, which is cost efficient not only to build but also affordable to live in.

The result is a home with far superior heating savings (up to 90% better) than standard building code compliant houses.

The entire envelope has a thermal performance which meets PHI Low Energy Building Standard, i.e. energy demand of no more than 27 kWh/m2a (in Queenstown Climate Zone). The house can be Passive House certified at an additional cost.

Standard Specifications:

a) Walls 140mm framing + 45mm service cavity with 140mm + 50mm Earthwool (R-value 5.5).

b) Ceiling 2 @ 195mm Earthwool (R-value 8.2).

c) Intello vapour barrier in wall and ceiling.

d) Air changes per hour at 50 pascals of pressure (ACH50) = 0.5

e) MAXRaft insulated concrete foundation (R-value 4.5)

f) Timber/aluminium clad windows from Elitfonster in Sweden (U-value 0.80 = R-value 1.25):

    • Triple glazing with 2 @ Argon gas in 16mm cavities
    • 2 @ low E glazing
    • Warm edge spacer Swisspacer
    • Codemark Certified for New Zealand

The indoor climate is vastly improved by utilising an advanced heating and energy recovery ventilation system and the triple glazed timber windows , which keeps the entire home warm in the winter (and cold in the summer). Your home will be free from moisture and have a constant supply of fresh air directly from the outside.

Although compact in size, each function in the house has been cleverly designed, including innovative under-floor heating in bathrooms, and with a priority on the large open plan kitchen, dining and living area.

Our homes are built by local certified builders to the highest quality, which is normally only seen in expensive luxury houses. The difference is that we have down scaled to a minimalistic Swedish design, with smart use of standardisation to achieve ultimate cost efficiency.

A home for the future!

Changing lives through great architecture & design. That is our mantra.

To achieve that mantra we believe in the principle of Client-Centric Design. Client-Centric Design is an overarching philosophy that puts our clients at the centre of the design process. It focuses on an approach that prioritises the needs, preferences, and aspirations of the client or end-user throughout the architectural design process. The goal is to create buildings, spaces, and environments that not only meet functional requirements but also resonate with the people who will use and inhabit them. This approach is especially crucial as architecture has a direct impact on the well-being, comfort, and experiences of the occupants.

Client-Centric Design in architecture goes beyond the physical structure; it involves understanding and addressing the emotional and psychological needs of the clients. By placing the client at the centre of the design process, we can create spaces that truly resonate with and enrich the lives of those who use them.

At Imagine Architecture, we believe that good architecture has the power to change lives. That’s why we are committed to using Client-Centric Design principles in all of our projects. Whether we are designing a high quality, healthy home to Passive House standard or a commercial space, we always begin by listening to our clients and understanding their needs. From there, we use our expertise and creativity to craft spaces that are not only beautiful and functional, but also promote health, wellbeing, and happiness. Our tagline, “changing lives through great architecture and design”, reflects our belief that the spaces we design have the power to make a real difference in people’s lives.
