The Offset House is a small architectural home suited to those looking to build an environmentally sustainable house on a modest budget.
The simple yet effective design consists of two diverging wings linked by a recessed entrance. The three forms that compose the house are simple in structure, which ensures affordability, whilst the offset placement creates a practical separation between the more public living spaces and the more private sleeping and bathing spaces.
The adaptable design of the Offset House also makes it suitable for a variety of sites. Simply adjust the angle of the living wing to face north and the house will perform as designed. The home will effectively heat and cool itself, harvest its own rainwater, and comfortably produce enough energy for a family of four - meaning your energy bills will be zero.
Inside the home, you'll find high ceilings, lots of natural light, natural materials, and non-toxic finishes. Our design team have crafted a small functional home that feels generous, light filled, cosy, and comfortable - an environmentally responsible home that more Australians can afford to build.
