Balhannah House Design by Max Pritchard Architect

July 10, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

Balhannah House, Design by Max Pritchard Architect. This substantial home is set in a backdrop of large gum trees with views over endless rolling hills of pasture and vineyards. The long thin form facing north maximizes the use of the sun for winter heating. External louvers over the terrace, may be adjusted for summer shade. Photovoltaic cells on the roof generate electricity, and incorporate a unique feature allowing excess heat to be ducted down to the house to aid winter heating. Roof water is collected in a large underground tank, for use throughout the house.Timber, corrugated iron, stone and weathered steel provide a timeless rural quality in a contemporary style.
