World’s 1st carbon positive prefab house?

February 17, 2015

Architects in Australia are claiming to have designed the worlds first carbon positive prefab house.


 Archiblox, based in Victoria,unveiled the concept at the Sustainable Living Festival,  which ran in Melbourne, Australia last week.

Architect Bill McCorkell and builder David Martin, directors of Archiblox, developed the 75m2 , 1 bedroom house using a range of passive design principles as well as sustainable materials and technologies. This has allowed the design of the house to achieve less than zero carbon emissions, according to its Life Cycle Assessment, which means a net positive for the environment. In essence, Archiblox expects the house to produce more energy on site, than the building requires to operate.
