Working with Sean Coddington, director of Sustainable Design & Construct, we have been designing and documenting adaptable, affordable, site-sensitive, ecologically sustainable homes. These buildings consist of a unique system of building methodology and have the ability to be completed (on a flat site) within 4-6 weeks. Every design is different and responds to each individual site and its characteristics. Over 12 schemes have been developed in both Sydney and country NSW. All solutions are unique to the site and vary accordingly.
Features of these developments include passive solar design, cross ventilation, rainwater harvesting, intelligent material usage, the use of local, ethical and non-toxic building materials, minimal maintenance over the life of the structure, minimal site disturbance, little to no wastage, systems of recycling, composting and landscape solutions that incorporate permaculture along with local endemic landscape species.
