A federation house in Mosman, Australia, evolved into a delightful living environment after being renovated. Anderson Architecture collaborated with the interior design studio, MacKenzie Design Studio, to create a functional eco-friendly home for a family with strong values towards sustainability and eco-friendliness.
Part of the renovation involved consisted of opening up the back of the house, while passive solar techniques and low-watt LED lighting, as well as solar hydronic floor and water heating were used to reduce the costs and power usage.
