Setting out to create a family home on a site considered "undevelopable", they faced many set backs including COVID-19 delays and lockdowns, and an accidental fire just weeks before they were set to move in. Relentlessly pushing forward with the build, The Hütt 01 Passivhaus was recently completed to the highest Passive House standards, creating more energy than it uses, and achieving a 8.6 NatHERS rating.

Through their co-founded business Melbourne Design Studio, Felicity and Marc have created many sustainable homes. When it came to creating a home for their own family, their skills and experience in this area were invaluable.

The Hütt 01 Passivhaus features numerous eco-friendly and sustainable products, applications and designs. One of which is Havwoods HW9554 Abrego timber flooring from our Valour range of engineered timber and available to order via Havwoods' Bespoke, a service allowing you to select products not usually stocked in Australia or to create your ideal custom floor of any size, colour, or pattern.

Featuring on the floors and as cladding on walls, kitchen island and cabinetry, Havwoods HW9554 Abrego was selected from the Valour timber flooring range for its durability and gorgeous tones, along with its certified sustainability qualifications. 

Made in Europe to their strict environmental laws, this timber floor also boasts both FSC® certification (C009500) and Cradle-to-Cradle SILVER certification.
