Safetyline Jalousie supplied louvre windows for a tiny home project developed by the Tiny Homes Foundation for the homeless. Considered Australia’s first approved tiny home project, the pilot project is located next to Gosford Hospital on the NSW Central Coast and comprises of four tiny homes, complete with toilet, shower, bed and kitchenette facilities.
The project also provides for a common lounge, a common laundry/workshop and community vegetable garden. The tiny home initiative aims to provide those experiencing homelessness a space to call their own.
Designed by NBRS Architecture, the single-occupancy units for the tiny home project have been conceptualised with carefully selected products and building materials that can be prefabricated or flat packed for easy assembly with simple tools without requiring specialised building skills. The home design is based on passive solar principles to maximise year-round thermal comfort.
Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows are supplied framed, glazed and assembled, ready to install into the openings. The louvres combine natural ventilation with security and durability to provide a complete solution.
