Halo House

Sector Domestic

Location Glen Iris

Construction Time 15 Months

Halo House was designed by Breathe Architecture with landscape design by Eckersley Garden Architecture.

Breathe explain the concept of a “halo effect” of enhanced activity in & around the house, similar to that of an iceberg in the ocean.

The home was scaled to house a large family & home business, with Breathe’s customary sustainable design features. These included the use of recycled materials, a large solar PV array, electric heat pumps for hydronic heating & hot water, rain water tanks, as well as passive solar design features, operable shading & low impact material selections.
