Stylish and functional energy efficient new home builds - for the Hamilton, Waikato and Coromandel area

Waikato Energy efficient
Simply Architecture
has the experience to provide practical and viable energy efficient architectural home design without compromising your lifestyle needs or budget. When we undertake design for new homes we consider:

  • orienting your home on the site to optimise solar energy
  • specially positions spaces to utilise solar gain
  • energy efficient water and heating systems
  • insulation with a high R-value
  • cabling installation prior to walls being lined to offer options for the future
Independent power generation is an important part of any eco-friendly house design. Photo-voltaic (PV) panels or wind generators can be installed on the roof or elsewhere depending on whether you are located in a sunny or breezy spot. 

An appliance controller will turn appliances on while power is being generated. An electric vehicle charger can be incorporated into your garage during the build or cables can be installed.

Energy efficient house renovations will make your living spaces not only eco-friendly but also economical

Renovations give your home a fresh feel and can increase your enjoyment of existing spaces and  increase your living areas to accommodate family members. They also give you the chance to improve the energy efficiency of your home and reduce your power usage. Options include:

  • upgrading windows to thermally efficient double or triple-glazed insulated glass units
  • switching to modern low-energy use light fittings and bulbs
  • improving insulation in walls and ceilings
  • investing in solar heating panels or more energy efficient heating and water heating systems.
  • improving indoor/outdoor flow and maximising the sun
