Charm and intelligence – energy-efficent homes from Coolhouse


The attraction of green, energy-saving architecture is growing, tempered only by perceptions of the associated cost. But an affordable green option is now in reach.

A Coolhouse is an architecturally designed, super energy-efficient, premium modular home, says Coolhouse business development director Ed Langston.

"Founded by award-winning architect Darren Jessop, a Coolhouse offers a sealed, well-insulated living environment."

Several factors set Coolhouse apart, including a construction arm with 20 years' experience in low-energy builds. Utilising off-site manufacturing methods for shorter build times, a Coolhouse structure is up in days and the home completed in 12 weeks.

"Coolhouse offers a low energy-use home that's easy on both the wallet and the environment. Super insulation and airtight building techniques can mean up to a 90% reduction in heat loss or gain compared to a conventional home," says Langston. "This means heating and cooling systems are not required – with a 70-80% saving in utility bills. Consistent temperature and humidity results in a healthier living environment."


Options are a mini Coolhouse (studio), one-bedroom crib, two- or three-bedroom townhouse and a three-bedroom home.
