44 Honiton Street, Torquay, Hervey Bay.
In December 2006 Hervey Bay City Council started construction of Sustainable Home Hervey Bay. The home is located in a well-established area, has been designed appropriately for the area's local market conditions, and suits a second or third homebuyer.
The architects, The TVS Partnership have designed the home with Hervey Bay's sub-tropical coastal climate and high humidity in mind. The design is responsive to the hot summer, mild winter, definite dry season and distinct seasonal temperature variation. The house received a 5 star BERS rating when the architect did the analysis house.
The 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home is an appropriate size and layout for several different family types. The house has room for a family with 2 or 3 children, and has the potential to accommodate elderly relatives, overnight guests, or a home office.
