Project undertaken by The Architects Studio, now MODE. close

The award winning Batchelor Pad was constructed on a very tight budget using single skin construction and innovative passive cooling techniques found in many historic ‘top end’ houses. Set in an established garden in the town of Batchelor, the Clients wanted high ceilings, light and airy spaces, and strong visual connections from all rooms to their gardens.

Energy saving techniques used include extensive operable wall openings and high level shutters to induce air flow. Careful orientation, generous eaves and a floating roof provide natural light while blocking out sun penetration.
