a sustainable design philosophy with a touch of luxe

+ ECO PRINCIPLES

Across the merri green+ development, there are many eco principles hard at work. An environmentally sensitive design approach ensures the dwellings exceed the average 6 star energy rating required by the building code.

Eco features:


  • high levels of insulation, including double glazing throughout, ensuring a more even temperature all year round.
  • strategically placed ceiling fans help augment the efficiency of the air conditioning, reducing running costs.
  • operable external shading has been provided for all west and north facing dwellings allowing occupants to control the solar gain
  • opportunities for cross ventilation are maximised in the town houses with the inclusion of security screen doors and fly screens to all windows.
  • rainwater will be harvested for flushing toilets and irrigation across all dwellings,
  • Australian made, no VOC paints (volatile organic compound), porcelain bench tops with low resin content and Australian, responsibly sourced hardwoods are a feature of the interiors.
  • extensive use of recycled bricks and reclaimed timbers throughout

 

+ TESLA BATTERIES

Rather than relying exclusively on the power grid and running up high energy bills, merri green+ is one of the first multi residential project in Australia to partner with Bradford Solar* and Tesla Energy to introduce Powerwall battery units to store solar energy in their townhouses. The townhouses will have their own Tesla Powerwalls and Solar PV system.

While solar panels represent a good energy source, especially in Australia, the problem is that excess power generated goes back to the grid and is purchased back from the energy retailers at a premium retail price, if you run out. At merri green+ Bradford* solar panels will be combined with Tesla Powerwall home batteries to store the solar energy harvested by these panels, allowing excess energy to be used as and when needed. Further innovation and advanced technology allows for the creation of a microgrid embedded network within the development which will distribute the stored energy as required, further lowering power bills and reliance on power companies.

As a backup, if the battery units run out of energy, the batteries are able to draw energy from the grid, re-charging during (cheaper) off-peak hours.
Those thinking about battery-operated electrical cars will also appreciate the foresight of such highly innovative features. As well as reducing energy costs, the Tesla system, combined with the solar panels, delivers a cleaner, greener and more sustainable form of energy.

+ LUXE FEATURES

Every dwelling at merri green+ features a high standard of living above and beyond regulatory requirements. The aim is to create spaces that we would all like to live in. There is a spirit of generosity underpinning the design principles at merri green+, with a focus on providing a smaller quantity of more spacious dwellings, across the whole site.
