The architect’s home
Open Sunday September 7 for Sustainable House Day
Ever wondered how an architect would update their home? This Sustainable House Day Caroline Pidcock will open the doors to her own heritage-listed three-storey terrace at Millers Point – mid-renovation.
Naturally the restoration and renovation by Pidcock, a leading sustainable architect, and her husband, also an architect, will be as sustainable as possible especially in regards to energy efficiency as well as a 2.4 kilowatt solar electricity system, a heat pump hot water system and a real time wireless energy meter. The renovation also features recycled timber throughout, no-VOC paints and timber finishes and double glazing retrofits to improve windows.
She is also wonderfully candid about her experience. “I now realise how important it is to follow the rules I advise for my clients,” says Caroline. “How do I know? Because I have broken nearly all of them!” Read more about Caroline’s project at her blog: www.pidcock.com.au/blog/2014/7/9/caroline’s-own- renovation.aspx
