Environmentally responsible housing starts with a smart design. At Hobsonville Point every home has been architecturally designed and assessed by the Hobsonville Point Design Review Panel to ensure that each house is desirable, affordable, healthy and functional. Houses are designed to a specially created Design Guide, unique to Hobsonville Point, which has principles that seek to reduce the energy and water consumption in the house.
Now that is smart.
