Sustainable project homes

Landcom, together with Clarendon Homes, have built the innovative Eco Living Display Homes at Pebble Crescent, The Ponds. It's a tangible way of showing the latest sustainability designs, materials, features and building products in a way that allows people to come in, walk around and actually see the way sustainability and style work together.

Sustainability doesn't have to be about going without. Sustainability is about high performance and precision, and it can be stylish, comfortable and cost effective.

Each of the three sustainable homes at The Ponds in Sydney's northwest pushes innovative sustainability concepts and designs in a different way. The Benchmark Home demonstrates current best practice in project home design and construction; the Greencycle Home will maximise environmentally friendly products and materials during construction; and the Net Zero Emissions Home will generate its own independent energy and water.

 

Caroline consulted to Landcom in the development of the brief and sustainability targets, as wells as in the selection of the builders and the initial development of the designs. She also wrote and illustrated the factsheet that aims to help purchasers to understand the real issues behind future proofing your home.

Really enjoyed today's RN program, especially emphases on smaller homes and improving old homes. I have a residential block in lovely Old Moss Vale but am losing enthusiasm to build. There are many lovely old timber and brick homes here. I may decide to eco update one of those.
