Extract

The design of an urban house located on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia has been completed
as an exemplar of ESD. The home is an essay in design synthesis: designed to integrate existing
principles with state of the art environmental technologies and a comprehensive methodology for
evaluating the performance of these technologies. The aim of this paper is to present selected results
of the data gained from this evaluation to give feedback on the performance of the solar technologies
used in the building. The paper argues that the project can form a model for future research into
sustainability.
