There are several things the client wishes for: - A koi pond in the backyard for the kids - A vegetable garden for Violett - A barbeque/grill permanently installed in the backyard for Bennett. - Entertainment space for the extended family and friends outside the backyard. Lawn area for kids to safely play in. - A water tank system big enough to provide for the family’s needs in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry. Kitchen sink is to be connected to the mains as an exception, on request from client. - Kitchen stove needs to be in the middle of the kitchen island bench as per filming needs of the client for her show. More lights also needed in the kitchen area. - As per the previous points, the clients have agreed to install in elevated hardwood floors in order to allow ease of access to services and to allow services to be installed easily underneath the floor system. Therefore, effective insulation and heating systems needs to be installed inside the home.

the PASSIVE DESIGN

The property should be able to achieve cross-ventilation practices as the ceiling height (2480mm at the lowest point and 3100mm at the highest point) and the open plan living area’s length (13.8m) are in a 5:1 ratio needed for cross ventilation. There are also several entrances around the home, as well as exits for the hot air to be flushed out by incoming cool air, that are shorter in distance than the given 13.8m.

Koi Pond

The Passive Design Plan outlines the current strategies applied to the home in order to create minimal use of active heating and cooling systems. Deciduous climber plants to be planted on the northern facade with built in framework to provide shading during the summer and access to the sun during winter. See sun diagrams to the right of page.

Trombe Wall installed to west wall

sun diagram - summer

The sun diagrams listed on this page show the direction of the sun during the day. Through the ample use of windows around the property, this home obtains a lot of sunlight during the day while having proper shading needed to redirect any direct sunlight. This answers the client’s desire to have plenty of natural lighting throughout their property.

Red arrows presented in the following two sun diagrams represent the suns rays’ direction towards the northern wall that recesses behind the current sectional cut. Solatube Skylight (see below for details)

Koi Pond and natural filter provide a sort of outdoor thermal mass cooling to the northern and eastern facades of the home.

76 degrees is known to be the angle of the sun during the summer equinox.

Deciduous trees on the eastern side of the property provide shading to windows 10 and 11 in house plan.

Northern breezes may also enter from the northern windows of the property, but it will be slowed down due to the deciduous trees planted at the north of the property.

See information below for the type of deciduous tree that if planted.

28.5o

There are several brick walls inside the property, including the trombe wall. These walls will be greatly affected during the winter time and be subject to the suns rays as the summer shading devices will be gone (deciduous vegetation or adjustable shading types) and the walls will be exposed to the sunshine. These should achieve thermal mass activities and heat up the home during winter.

The SolaTube Skylights to be installed into the property will also include the following elements; the exhaust addition and the lighting fixture addition. This is to allow for any steam or smells in the bathrooms to come out of the home and also to provide light to the rooms when it is night.

PASSIVE DESIGN KOOKABURRA HOUSE

An adjustable louvre like this one is to be placed on the western window, but it needs to be custom made to fit the window specifications listed in the house plans. It also needs to be adjustable so that shade could be provided during summer and so that the sun could have access to the room during the winter months.

This plant was chosen to be the deciduous vine that will be planted for the shading strategy at the north of the property. They are categorized as deciduous vines and also emit a lovely perfume smell of jasmine through the property as northern winds pass through the property.

the WATER RECYCLING & DRAINAGE PLAN

The Water Recycling and Drainage plan provides the information needed to place the piping and vents, as well as the gradients at which the main sewer pipes go. This also provides information on natural or active systems you can use to recycle water from the house to reuse again in toilets and for watering the garden.

s

Grey Flow PRO (GFPRO) Greywater Diversion System

The slope of the sewage system is extremely important in that the gradient of system must be in the ratio of 2:100, or in the case of these calculations, 2cm per 1m of piping.

This greywater system was made to assist large homes (3+ bedrooms) with their water recyling needs. Albeit the fact that the client’s home is within the range of a small-medium sized home, a lot of their water usage (360L/day) can be converted into greywater and be used to water the gardens and to flush the toilet. This greywater system will recycle a maximum of 120L and since this water will be constantly used daily to water the expansive garden area around the home, the limit should be adequate. In the case that this limit is filled, there is an overflow connected from the system to the natural filter on the east side of the building, leading to the koi pond in the backyard. After 24 hours, all the remaining water inside the greywater system will be automatically dispersed into the sewage pipe system. This is to prevent bacteria from accumulating in the system and affecting the water that will be used. The system all elements needed in a greywater system, including a large filter as well as a pump to release the water out.

The overall piping length of the home from the highest sewage point to the sewer vent is approximately 19.5m, therefore the overall height of the slope from the highest sewage point to the lowest (sewer vent) is to be 39cm.

Koi Pond

T

greywater system specifications

To be safe and to let the waste flow faster, the ratio is to be upped to 2.5cm per 1m, resulting in a gradient slope height of 48.75cm from the highest to the lowest point.

The two pictures on the left provide insight into the excavation method of the koi pond and the possible finished product.

As well as being a beautiful landscape feature for the home, the aquaponic bog filtration system and koi pond will provide both thermal mass systems to the home as well as a filtration system that could clean the water and provide water do the home in the case of a drought. (Look at Resilience design plan for more information.)

The rocks seen in the plan within the boundaries of both filtration systems are there to create the effect of the waterfall system that clean the water as the fall into the filtrations systems. (See figure below for more information.)

This system also helps maintain and get rid off any excess water overflow from the greywater system, greatly reducing the amount of water going away from the house as sewage waste. Interestingly, this koi pond, if expanded, can also provide for a natural pool if the client wanted one or as another resilience design idea in the event of a heatwave in Australia. (Look at Resilience design plan for more information.)

A HydroVortex System is needed to be installed at the end of the natural garden filter (Aquaponic bog filter) in order to move water to the koi pond as well as clean it.

The clients do not mind having to adjust the vents in the trombe wall system in order to achieve either heating or cooling in their home. They are energy conscious and believe that since Violett Miller is home most of the time and cooks for a living, the overall heat of the room should rise as the kitchen range and oven contributes to the heat dispersal.

INDOORS

The clients are also prepared to dress appropriately indoors in cases where the weather might be colder than usual.

In the event that none of these solutions work, the clients will then use the hydroponic panel systems as well as the woodfire heater if the passive heating practices do not achieve the desired temperature.

The wood that is to be used for the woodfire heater in the living room area can be obtained around the site. This is due to the fact that there are many trees around the property, most being deciduous trees in the north and east of the property, and a few evergreens at the front for privacy reasons. These trees require maintenance, which the clients don’t mind doing themselves, or if they are busy at times, they will hire a gardener and some of the wood needed can be obtained through this maintenance.

This is a radiant system and also may require time to heat up, therefore, it needs to be turned on quite early. This does not pose a problem to the client as one of them do work from home and will be available to turn it on anytime it is needed.

water panel heaters Hydronic Radiant Panel Heating HYDRONIC PANEL HEATING PROPERTIES: - Response Time: Approx. 30mins - Has low maintenance requirements - Control valves at every panel for zoning purposes. - Uses clean energy, with no use for coal or gas, only hot water. - Depending on the room, it can be customized for areas, even those with high or low ceilings.

This system is to be installed in the master bedroom.

Low Surface Temperature (LST) Panel Radiators

Panel heaters are desired by the clients as they are low maintenance and cost a low amount of money to run, especially since the hot water being provided for the system is taken from their solar hot water system, therefore no gas is used to heat the water. WOODFIRE HEATER PROPERTIES: - Response Time: Approx. 5-10mins - Has high maintenance requirements - Low cost of operation, as the wood can be sourced from the property. - Great in the event if some of the other heating systems are down, this system can still run. - Creates low greenhouse gas emissions. - As a backup if there are no firewood available, gas can be used. Information and Photographs From:

This system is to be installed in the kids’ bedrooms as it is a safe system to touch and the kids’ safety are one of the client’s main concerns for this heating system.

Designer Panel Heater This system is to be installed in the main kitchen area as that area does become part of the filming scene and therefore needs to be presentable when videod. This system was installed on request from the client.

As explained before, the woodfire heater will only be used if the other systems, both active and passive, are not enough.

Once again, the trombe wall was installed to become the main form of passive design cooling in the home besides the cross-ventilation practices listed in the passive design plan. If it becomes too hot and the trombe wall is not able to cool the main room down, then active systems, such as the evaporative cooling system, fans and solar air conditioner will be able to cool down the home.

Through detailed shading design and the house layout, the client should be able to enjoy their property without having to turn on any active systems for most of the day, on the exception of the fans, which cost approximately 4cents/kWh to run, ultimately saving the clients money in the long run.

Low running costs compared to reverse cycle air conditioners.

The system operates very quietly, unlike most air conditoners or ducted heating systems. This is a reverse cycle system, so it can also be used for heating. Comes with a sensor that automatically turns on the air conditioner when the room temperature reaches above 26OC and turns it off when it reaches below the consumer’s desired temperature. This feature can be switched off if the client does not want it, as this system will only be used if the shading, fans, cross-ventilation and trombe wall does not work.

This system is deemed to be their quietest system.Low noise is a requirement bacuse if this system is running while the filming occurs, the sound of the system may be picked up in the microphones. Evaporative coolers need a connection from the mains water or the water supply of the home in order to function as that water is needed to cool the air that the system sucks in from the outside.

the DESIGN for RESILIENCE S

Vegetable Garden Koi Pond

Designing for resilience in any home today is important. With current changes in average temperatures, the effects of global warming to society’s infrastructures could pose as a dangerous threat. There are three main concerns that needs to be tackled in reference to Australia’s future climate in the event of future disasters due to global warming. They are: Flooding Power Outages

BBQ

Drought and Heatwaves The main problem that is going to be addressed on this page would be Drought and Heatwaves, as this is currently the problem that frequently occurs in this area right now. To quickly address solutions to the others:

underground heatwave bunker 1:100

Bladder Tank underneath decking

An underground heatwave bunker would be a very useful addition to a home if th area suffers from heatwaves, like Melbourne. The underground temperature of Melbourne under 1m would be between 16-18OC, so the room would always be around the same temperature. This would be very useful if a major heatwave were to happen and it were to occur for two weeks. The residents would be safe under here.

natural filter pool A pool is always a good way to tackle a heatwave and a natural filter pool will be a proficient way for the clients to have a pool and to still be environmentally conscious at the same time.

Flooding

Flooding is not likely to occur in this area. Even if the world’s polar ice caps melted, according to National Geographic, the sea levels will rise 65.8m, but the elevation of the property is 81m high. Power Outages The site already has a very proficient solar power system that creates more power in a day than the client’s usage needs. To survive a power outage, simply another battery should let their power last a few days.

water filter straws LifeStraw Steel In the event of a serious drought and drinking water is not readily available, purchasing a few LifeStraw Steels would enable the clients to drink the water from their pond, natural filtration system or even pool. If there is water left in the rainwater tanks, this water could also be filtered by drinking throught the LifeStraw. On a side note, if extreme droughts were coming, the client could also install a few more water tanks around the property.

The pool will be linked to the current koi pond and natural filter, but it will need a grate in the middle to prevent the fish from coming into the pool. With its connection to the current system, there is a chance that the water will already have been filtered the natural way, so that the submerged pump won’t have to be used much.
