The Fern – Site Tour

| Alexandria, NSW

The Fern is the Southern Hemisphere’s first Passivhaus Certified apartment building 300m from Redfern station, comprising 11 x one-bedroom ‘next-gen’ serviced apartments.

The apartments feature:

• Triple glazed doors and windows – 6 times more energy efficient than code compliant equivalents.

• Airtight construction – 40 times better than average homes, keeping out dust, noise and insects.

• Constant fresh, hypoallergenic filtered air free of dust, pollen and pollution through Heat Recovery Ventilation – now a code compliant ventilation solution thanks to the Fern.

• Structural thermal breaks preventing unwanted heat transfer – world first design innovation.

• 21kW of solar power with smart metering, with no electricity or hot water bills anticipated.

• 9.3-10 star NatHERS energy ratings – Best ever achieved in Australian apartments.

Local architect and builder Oliver Steele has spent the last 4 years designing and detailing each and every aspect of his latest creation. He’s overseen the Steele Associates team with the uncompromising precision that’s earned them a swathe of industry awards in the past decade.

Bringing sustainable living to Australia is Oliver’s life’s work – which is why he’s embraced the Passivhaus movement.

DFC Members and friends are fortunate to have a site tour of these apartments delivered by Oliver on October 30, 8:00-9:00am sharp.
