Ecovillage Home, a Shared Design: Sanctuary Magazine Issue 31

May 9th, 2015

May 2015: We are excited that our co-house design has been included in the current issue of Sanctuary Magazine.  (Published quarterly, this magazine features examples of sustainable design in Australia.) 

This issue (#SanctuaryIssue31) features include –

  1. examples  of modular builds,
  2. houses which feature reuse of materials, as well as
  3. exploring the ‘tiny house’ movement
  4. sustainable gardening practices,
  5. examples of share house (co-house design), and
  6. ways to help control the costs of construction for homes and renovations.

These are all issues which we are passionate about.  We enjoy addressing where we can in our work as well as, slowly, in our own home.

Our own home is designed a shared house (or a co-house design)

You can also see images of our place as it evolves

  • on our website, or
  • on occasion on our facebook page amongst a stream of other thoughts and posts which keep us entertained.
