Roger Joyner

roger joyner - passivhaus perthRoger’s career has spanned decades in the UK architectural & design industries covering commercial, retail, housing, industrial & property development sectors within professional practice, major multiple retail & restaurant operators & running his own design practice for 12 years prior to emigrating to Australia in 1996.

Design awards for his first home in Perth drew a steady flow of private clients for solar passive designed homes culminating in the 2010 ‘South Perth House’ which won most of the Western Australian Housing Industry Association GreenSmart awards in 2013 as well as their national award for Energy Efficiency and the WA Building Designers Association award for best Sustainable Residential Building in 2014.

Feeling passionate about the GHG emissions from wasted energy and seeing that there were still further improvements to be made to energy efficiency through improvements to the thermal envelope, Roger undertook training in New Zealand to become a Passivhaus Consultant and now specialises in the design of ultra-low energy homes in Western Australia.

The formation of Passivhaus Perth aims to provide not only solar passive design but Passivhaus certified buildings and the supply and installation of heat recovery ventilation systems from Zehnder.
