An Architect’s Own Family Off-Grid Sustainable Home

Melbourne architect, Jerry Wolveridge of Wolveridge Architects, bought the rural property of his clients, and after a study of local agricultural buildings, decided to design a simple, timber-clad pitched off-grid home. Jerry went a step further, adopting the construction methods of Australian sheds, using steel portal frames and avoiding typical “home” materials.

This off-grid home relies heavily on a smart plan arrangement, with the house being long and thin, allowing for optimal cross ventilation which helps during the hot Australian summers. To help heat the home during the chilly Victorian winters, there is a wood-fire boiler and radiator grills and panels. Jerry includes his children into the off-grid living, having guessing games revolving around the internal temperatures.
