Caulfield East Project

Our client requested a design for a state-of-the-art, three-unit development that combined the latest sustainable technology with a great aesthetic. The design was to use passive solar design with a minimum of 6.5 Star FirstRate rating and incorporate as many sustainable features as possible for the budget. The project was ground breaking in that there was no other development like it in Victoria and was “a leap of faith” as to whether potential buyers would pay a premium for the sustainable features. This was a brave step for a client who had not previously undertaken a project of this scope. The units are a case study of best practice in using sustainable principles to create a multi dwelling development. From the light filled spaces and exceptional levels of comfort to the energy efficient and environmentally friendly products and supplies, these units are unique.
