Gavin and Nadia’s beautiful barn-style home was built on an existing site in Shirley. This four bedroom home fits the brief for this family of five: a Passive House with no downlights, no carpet and no drapes. Some great design features include the skylights providing light for the children’s bedrooms and loft space, the large verandah shading the living areas from the summer sun and the beautiful bath with the garden outlook in the master bedroom.
