Transcript of Rozak House
Reinforced Concrete Footings
Steel frame: Raised Nortruss Steel frame, Custom Design, Galvanised
Hardwood used for decking slatted (Cyprus pine)
Slate used in kitchen and wet areas.
Walls external: Zinc Alume: reflects heat, fire resistant, termite resistant.
Walls internal: Plywood, glass and wood louvers, flyscreens, steel mesh
Ceiling is zincalume corrugated iron, fiber cement stains sags in Darwin humidity.
Roof corrugated iron Materials were selected to last.
"At least 150 years"
The Rozak House does not achieve
high levels of sustainability through the use of technology but by simple, practical design. Rozak House Materials Reinforced Concrete Footings Steel Frame: Raised steel frame: Galvanised custom design Slatted Hardwood Decking Slate Used in Kitchen &
Bathrooms Some external walls
are Zinc Alume The Bathrooms use perforated corrugated steel for additional ventilation. Other internal wall
panels are plywood Other walls are wooden louvers Steel framed wall External wall cladding Water Usage Rain Water Tanks Roofing material: Custom Orb
Zinc Alume The Rozak House is not connected to the mains
Water is all collected and stored on site during the
wet season in the NT The Rozak House Rain Water Details -300 sqm of roof fed into 110,000 liters of tanks.
A typical family will use between 100,000 and 200,000 liters a year as long as they don't water the lawn and shrubs and take care not to waste water. "Darwin can get up to 2 meters of rain a year, providing me with 600,000 liters of water." "Unfortunately, those 2 meters all come within 4-6 months, so I need to save enough water for the rest of the year."
"On the bright side, because I don't have any spare water I can't maintain a lawn or shrubbery. Even if I did have the water I still wouldn't do any landscaping; the water's a good excuse though." No air conditioning
Gas oven and cook

Roof Mounted System; 2.25m 2
Solar hot water system 1/2km from the nearest power cable Lifestyle "To maintain the ambient temperature outside is the best you can do in Darwin. You can't make it any better than that. You certainly can't take the moisture out of the air unless you go to air conditioning."

1643 kWh/year Use "...due to their limited diurnal range ... passive cooling is ... more effective in low mass buildings"
"Thermal comfort during sleeping hours ... primary design consideration."
"Lightweight construction responds quickly to cooling breezes. High mass can completely negate these benefits."

Wet - October to March (H 36°C, L 22°C) Monsoons, cyclones, thunderstorms, high humidity Follow the sun or the shade Deep enough living
pavilion to escape... Deep sheltering roof overhangs East to west John White & Holly Stockton Conclusion 2 degrees cooler in the day
but 2 degrees warmer at night Sustainable buildings do not have to be hi-tech. They just have to be appropriately designed for their environment and practical to inhabit.
Houses in Perth and other cities should follow this design. Longlasting Materials are Sustainable Environmental design with standard materials
