Architectual award winning project
05 Sep, 2014
The Australian Institute of Architects has selected the ‘Southern Outlet House’ as the most outstanding work of residential architecture – houses – in Tasmania in 2014. The Southern Outlet House was designed by award winning Tasmanian architecture and design studio Philip M Dingemanse.
Mode Electrical worked closely with the architect from the beginning of the design process, providing total solutions for solar power generation, hot water, efficient fixtures and fittings and lighting design. We integrated an effective wiring strategy where a centrally located sub board was installed to reduce wire runs.
The energy efficient technologies are aligned with best practice passive design principles including high levels of thermal control of the building envelope and optimum solar orientation. These prove to limit current and future running costs together with long-term environmental impact and demonstrate that best results are achieved when architecture and technology are considered together.
