Sustainable Homes Completed in 2019

It was a busy year!

2019 was a big year for Eco Sustainable Homes, we completed quite a few projects.

Our most recent four have been in Castlemaine, Yapeen and two in Chewton. To learn more about these projects and see the completed homes, keep reading!

Contemporary design on a challenging Castlemaine site

Project Priorities

This home was to be eco-friendly and require minimal maintenance. Our client wanted a home which was nice and cool in summer and very warm in winter.

Our client also wanted to ensure his home captured the site’s views across Castlemaine to Mount Alexander. Due to the natural slope of the property, we designed a split-level home. The large south-facing windows capture the view and the north facing windows work with them to achieve solar passive gain.

Incorporation of hardwood floors throughout the majority of the home was also important to our client.

Spacious retirement home – lots of room for hobbies!

Project Priorities

The priority for these clients was to have a low maintenance home. They didn’t want their new home to feel out of place, instead it was to be in harmony with the landscape.

They wanted a quality sustainable home that incorporated rammed earth. And had many versatile specialty spaces and rooms for hobbies.

While this project was a retirement home, it was by no means a small house. Coming in at 346 square meters (not including the carport!), the design was of great importance. We worked to ensure the new house meshed with the surrounding landscape.
