The ‘Step House’ by David Barr Architects is the winner of the LandCorp Gen Y competition for unique and sustainable residential dwelling design concepts that encapsulated the Generation Y lifestyle.
The project is located within LandCorp’s White Gum Valley, an innovative residential development located 3km from the Fremantle city centre. David Barr Architects conducted a full eTool Life Cycle Assessment of the project, which helped to inform additional innovative sustainable design features.
Some of the features include the installation of a 9kw PV system, low embodied energy materials, energy efficiency measures and low water use. The carbon emissions per occupant per year is estimated at 64kg, which is 98% lower than the average equivalent Australian residence.
