This Architect Pushed for Maximum Sustainability on His Own Home - An Architect’s Home ep11

Melbourne-based architect Nick Harding wanted to use his own home as a prototype to see what maximum sustainability could look like for the quintessential Melbourne heritage row house and if it was possible to make his home energy neutral. With row houses though you're limited with your orientation, especially in areas with strict heritage control, and so Nick's home had an east-west aspect, far from the ideal of south-north for good passive design.

Picking up cues from the olive trees, Nick went with a subdued green for the joinery, creating a calm interior space. He tested a lot of greens and ended up creating his own signature colour by adding a tiny amount of green to a grey base, giving a desaturated appearance.
