Filter house, Broome, Western Australia

This note was reviewed and approved by the Author in September 2018.

Filter House design was developed as an entry to the Broome Sustainable Housing Competition, organised by the Western Australian Department of Housing and Works.  The competition called for the design of a single dwelling on a greenfield site in Broome to meet the standard spatial and briefing requirements of the Department of Housing and Works but with significantly less impact on the environment.  This paper briefly describes the building and investigates its post occupancy performance following twelve months of continual data collection.
