Exemplar House

The Exemplar house is a basic two storey design of a house, with a building system typical for New Zealand comprising of three bedrooms and a garage. This model was used as the basis for a study on energy and climate change impacts of a standard house over its life cycle. Materials, heating schedules and climatic setting of the house were modified to examine effects on the life cycle impacts.
