Viridian Low E Glass Windows used at Award-Winning Eco Home

The Winmalee Eco Home in the Blue Mountains constructed by Blue Eco Homes in collaboration with local architect Ross Young has just won the 2010 MBA Awards Environmental Management Award.

The Eco Home is a 7½ star modern, low impact, low maintenance and low energy use family home that blends with the landscape and also incorporates a wide range of environmentally sustainable design principles as well as green technologies. 

Some of the features include corrugated iron and rust-painted compressed sheet walls, a floor plan that responds to the site contours as well as a curved roofline and unpretentious louvered windows that meld seamlessly with the bush backdrop.

Bedroom wings fan out from the central living, kitchen and dining areas, with the main living areas and children’s bedrooms opening on to a large covered verandah offering views of the bush.
