Rivergum Homes is opening the doors to its award winning Bowden development as part of this year’s Sustainable House Day on September 7.
Terraces on Sixth, located within the Bowden precinct, on the edge of Adelaide’s CBD, is the first townhouse in Australia to receive the highest green-star rating.
Victor Said, Managing Director of Rivergum Homes, said the new townhouses demonstrated the company’s commitment to integrating environmentally friendly living and home design.
“Bowden is one of Adelaide’s most sought after near-city developments and we want to show that you don’t have to sacrifice environmentally friendly practices to live in an urban area or vice-versa,” he said.
“Terraces on Sixth combines the best of both worlds with the use of sustainable materials and investment in environmentally friendly infrastructure - all within walking distance to the city.”
The Green Star environmental rating system for buildings was developed by GBCA, and is Australia’s first comprehensive rating system for evaluating the environmental design and performance of Australian buildings based on a number of criteria, including energy and water efficiency, indoor environment quality and resource conservation.
“Achieving a five-star green-star rating is great recognition and is proof on paper that sustainable design is achievable in multi-unit residential development,” Mr Said added.
The architecturally designed terraces showcase a range of environmentally friendly features including solar power, water management systems, integrated sustainable materials, rainwater harvesting and energy saving appliances.
Sustainable House Day, to be held on September 7 and 14, is a national event aimed at encouraging and inspiring people around Australia to live more environmentally responsible.
