Standard: Passivhaus Standard (non – certified)
Passivhaus buildings are not just for cool climates as demonstrated by this house in Queensland just 1 hour out of Brisbane. With careful shading, a well insulated envelope and minimal thermal mass, year-round comfort is assured. Unlike most of the southern states, in this climate, a separate dehumidifier is recommended to remove moisture from the air during the shoulder seasons when running the airconditioner for dehumidification would make the house uncomfortably cold.
