A house with no bills. Sounds too good to be true right?
As part of Melbourne’s 2015 Big West Fest, Village Real Estate are hosting an inspirational evening of home creativity and design.
Where is it?
Made with love and built on dreams, HOUSE is Big West Festival’s 2015 Festival Hub, situated in Big West’s mini Village in Paisley Street, Footscray. Joining the real and the imagined, HOUSE has inspired over 50 incredible artworks that ask what it means to call a house a home and will itself transform from a theatre set to a house for a family experiencing homelessness. Curated by Big West’s Artistic Director, Marcia Ferguson, designed by architects (NMBW Architecture Studio), quality controlled by women who have experienced homelessness, built by students at Victoria and Monash Universities and supported by many generous partners, HOUSE is a theatre, a prototype dwelling for social housing services and in 2016, a home.
Who is speaking?
Tim Adams, the creator of “House with no bills” will be presenting his work and ideas at the event. With 35 years of building design experience and early adoption of energy rating tools places, F2 is a leader in the field of energy efficient house design. Tim Adams has investigated zero energy design responses for a number of years and was the instigator of the highly successful 10 Star Challenge in 2011 when President of the Building Designers Association of Victoria.
Who would enjoy this event?
The evening has been created for homebuyers and those with a pension for all things home design and creativity. We know that houses with high performance attributes are not ony more comfortable to be in, but they reduce running costs while minimizing environmental impact. If you’re in the market to buy or renovate, a little consideration at conceptual design stage will reap rewards in money and pleasure for the life of the building. If the objective is factored in at the outset, it is possible to create your home with little or no running costs.
How can I attend?
