Innovation House 1.0 is a living experiment and was North Queensland’s first 10 Star Energy Efficient display home delivered at an affordable price. The house also includes of of the innovation house framework elements within the project.
The community of Townsville have long held the belief that they can and should be leading the way in best practice solutions.
Perhaps this is driven by the tyranny of regional community separation from capital city input and having to find solutions to their issues from within. The community wanted answers to this question, “what does a housing best practice example look like”, so with the support of the local community this home was delivered to show what could be achieved. The solution had to look like a regular home and had to be at the usual price point.
As a best practice demonstration how good housing could be and what does a great example actually look and feel like.

Open to the public as a display home and we had the nice challenge of having to ask people to leave so that we could move in!
