Step 1

Concept Design

We help you create a better home.

Our affordable initial Concept Design Package is the first Step to explore possibilities based on your vision, and provide you options of what is possible within your current budget.

Often, people are hesitant to consider a sustainable, low-energy, healthy High Performance Home, because they fear it will cost more or that it may not look attractive enough. This could not be further from the truth, we believe that are more affordable than conventionally built homes over the long term.

High Performance Homes (PassivHaus) are extraordinary comfortable, super energy efficient, healthier with controlled humidity and pollen /dust free fresh air, quieter and you are helping our planet with less emissions.

In our focus to provide you a better home ,we present you with three options to consider, so you can make an informed decision.

  • Built to Standard building code
  • Built to High Performance Standards
  • Built to Certified PassivHaus Standard

Regardless of each option you choose, we utilize the Passive House design approach, that relies on advanced building science, and we test how the house will perform before its built, reassuring you what is being designed will perform exactly as planned. No other building standard in the world does this “Proven -Tested – Measured in over 80 000” projects worldwide. Welcome to H4 Living, we hope we can assist to bring your vision to life.

Construction

Construction process should be an enjoyable time, building or renovating a home is a complex orchestration of a thousand detailed tasks. H4 Living processes, personal attention, one point of contact, are designed for you to relax and enjoy your building journey.

Building to H4 Living quality requirements particular with high performance /passivehomes detailing, requires trained and qualified building teams. Our teams are all handpicked based on experience and evidence of ethics, they are all Licensed and Certified builders, Members of Building Associations (not trades supervisors looking after 20 homes simultaneously). Most are trained or being trained as ‘PassivHaus Certified” Tradespeople, and we regularly have training sessions to ensure a best building experience and expected quality of an H4 Living designed Home.

Design Team works along Build Teams to ensure quality of design intent is met, and regular milestone quality inspections are conducted during the build. A final independent quality building inspection at handover is also conducted and reported to H4/Owners prior to Handover.

With our Sustainability focus and helping you create the best possible home, all materials, internal finishes, fittings are selected from reputable companies (not just the cheapest possible).

If you decide to build with our High Performance / PassivHaus upgrades, we invite you to participate on all Blower Door air pressure testing to ensure that future performance is exactly as planned.

We hope we can assist to bring your vision to life
