Design features include:

  • Solar passive design
  • Connection and integration into the precinct water storage and supply system
  • Establishment of a grey water system to harvest, treat and reuse grey water for irrigation
  • Connection and integration into the fire tanks and pumps located at the adjoining site
  • Centralised gas hot water system
  • Geothermal heat exchange system for use in air conditioning systems
  • The buildings acknowledge historical elements of the site, incorporating the old pottery kiln in the footprint and displaying industrial textures and material in the building.
  • Post-tensioned slabs and AFS walls were utilised
