Cottesloe Retrofit and Additions

Ecotect Architects acted as architectural and environmental consultants to the developer of this Federation home in Cottesloe. The brief was to recycle thedilapidatedhouse and transform it into a well performing passive solar house. The design included a special air collection system in the roof which took warm air from the roof space in winter and in the summer acted as a night exhaust system, keeping the house cool for the following day. The result is an iconic home in an iconic location.
