Project Background

This project by eHaus Otago is the first certified Passive House Co-Housing project in New Zealand. Located in Dunedin, the co-housing project consists of 21 Passive Homes. 

"The neighbourhood which is designed around a common central green space includes 24 homes of varying sizes. All houses are freehold unit titles and will have everything one would expect in a typical house, kitchen, dining, lounge, bathrooms and laundry facilities etc. However, in addition, occupants will also have access to a range of shared facilities housed within the existing re purposed school building. Shared facilities include a large multi purpose space, commercial sized kitchen, workshop, laundry, guest rooms and social space and a bookable meeting rooms." - architype.co.nz
