Seven of Christchurch’s most innovative and sustainable homes will be opened to the public in May to encourage others to build smarter.
The free Exemplar Homes Tour will allow people to see inside a selection of homes built to showcase sustainable and affordable design.
People will be able to step inside homes that are among the greenest in New Zealand, homes that have no power bills, homes that collect rainwater, and homes that use solar energy to power their car. At each home people will be able to speak to the designer or builder and learn more about its special features.
The tour, which allows people to visit the homes in any order they want at any time between 11am and 4pm each weekend in May, has been organised by the Superhome Movement in partnership with Christchurch City Council.
“We want people to experience these homes for themselves, see the technology at work and help them to understand that it is possible to build better quality homes at little or no additional cost,” said Christchurch City Council Sustainability Principal Advisor Tony Moore.
“If people are thinking about building new homes we want them to be making informed choices and building healthy, sustainable homes. Hopefully a visit to these seven exemplar homes will help inspire them,” Mr Moore said.
Details of the seven homes that are part of the tour and a map showing their location can be found here.
