‘Warm House Cool House simplifies the science behind low-energy housing design... and suggests inspiring and achievable ways to apply energy-efficient methods to new and existing homes.’ - Jamie Durie

We all want to minimise our environmental impact, but we don’t always know how. In this new edition of the bestselling Warm House Cool House, respected Australian architect Nick Hollo provides valuable advice, illustrated by more than 100 inspiring contemporary examples of low-energy housing design, to help keep our homes cool in summer and warm in winter with little or no cooling and heating by appliances. The book shows how we can live comfortably without airconditioning in Far North Queensland, be cosy and bushfire-proof in the Australian Alps, and cope with temperature fluctuations in cities like Melbourne and Adelaide. From project and kit homes to new architect-designed houses, renovations and extensions, these low-energy principles can easily be incorporated into every home. Whether you are planning to renovate, build or buy, this book offers clever ideas on how to make any house, anywhere, an environmentally sustainable, comfortable and attractive place to live in, all year round, while keeping electricity, gas and water bills comfortably low.
