TS Constructions have been working closely with Beaumont Concepts to develop the CORE range of homes. Together they have designed and built a stylish, 173m2 single-story home (132m2 of living space) with visually impressive articulation and material selection.
CORE is more than a name, it is a collaboration between designer, builder and energy rating professional to develop a range of homes which achieve optimal energy efficiency and materials sustainability whilst still being affordable for the mainstream housing market.
Core stands for “Carbon Positive” “Zero Waste” “Recycled” and “Economical”
The home is a three bedroom home single level home with separate garage, generous Living and two bathrooms.
TS Constructions were proudly responsible for all aspects of the build, from the initial site cut through to final landscaping.
A pergola constructed from PEFC certified Australian Hardwood provides some of the Northern shade, whilst clever placement of the solar panels provides the balance of the shade giving the panels a second function
The first prototype home is the CORE 9.1 star home situated at Lot 15 Noonflower close Cape Paterson, Victoria. Download the plans directly from The Cape HERE
The home has been designed along Passive Solar guidelines with large, but well shaded windows to the North allowing for winter sun to heat the thermal mass elements of the polished concrete floors and the recycled brick thermal mass walls, but preventing the harsh summer sun from overheating the building.
