The Ideal House is a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 3 living area family home located in Beachlands, South-East Auckland. It was designed to be an educational show-home for two years during which time it was opened every two weeks to showcase high performance building.
The home was completed in 2014, and is certified as Passive House Plus and has a 8 Homestar Design rating, with the built rating (either a 9 or 10) about to be awarded.
The home produces around 35% more power that it consumes over a year and can maintain 20 degrees all year without any heating, and also enjoys low humidity and CO2 levels due to its balanced heat exchanged ventilation system and other technologies.
