The Sustainability Experts

  • Adriano Pupilli Architects

    Adriano Pupilli Architects design smarter, finely-tuned buildings for life, work and play. We are committed to innovative and sustainable architectural solutions, crafting living breathing buildings that foster joyful interactions between people and with our surrounding ecologies. We specialise in the design of bespoke residential spaces, from new homes, rear extensions and upstairs additions, to medium density housing, staff and resort accommodation. We believe that bigger is not necessarily better. We design smarter, finely-tuned buildings, poetically instinctive responses that fulfil our client’s brief while gently integrating into our urban, rural and coastal environments. We have specialist expertise in ecologically sustainable design and believe sustainable to be beautiful. We see architecture as a social art, drawing inspiration from the people we work with through meaningful consultation throughout the design process.

  • David Baillie Architect

    Rising energy costs and the sustainability of our planet are issues which are very closely linked and affect everyone, everywhere. Together these two issues have prompted governments, large and small businesses, and individual home owners to become more conscious of the environment we all share and the energy we all waste needlessly. With this thought in mind, our goal at David Baillie Architect is to seamlessly combine innovative design with outstanding energy efficiency to enhance lifestyle, save money and help protect our environment.

  • Day Bukh Architects

    Day Bukh Architects are deeply interested in designing ecological and sustainable buildings for the Australian context. Our ecological concerns extend beyond reducing energy use to include social sustainability. This involves designing buildings that last by using environmentally friendly materials that withstand the harsh Australian environment, and also designing buildings that can be adapted for re-use, thus ensuring longevity.

  • Delisle Hunt Wood

    Delisle Hunt Wood is a new firm of architects, where three experienced architects have combined forces to create a fresh approach to sustainable design. We are client focused using a straight forward practical and personal approach to provide cost effective solutions that create stimulating, healthy, resource-efficient homes that are holistically conceived. We believe successful, responsible, environmental design is about making smart choices rather than costly ones. We have extensive experience in providing detailed thermal comfort analysis, even of existing homes, which can be used to inform your sustainability choices whilst building and renovating, to make sure you get the best outcome from your new design.

  • Efficient Living

    Efficient Living is a long established and highly respected consultancy located on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. As sustainable building consultants, Efficient Living understands how buildings perform in their environment, how people live in their homes and how best to use technology to maximise lifestyle, reduce energy bills and increase resale value. Since 2000, Efficient Living has modeled and assessed thousands of thermal comfort projects from architectural homes to landmark commercial buildings

    Please bring along plans, BASIX or NatHERS assessments for review. Haylea can advise you on design changes and appropriate building specifications to optimise comfortable temperatures and a healthy indoor environment. Advice and guidance can be advised on both existing and proposed dwellings. 

  • Energy & Water Ombudsman NSW

    Investigation Officer from the Energy & Water Ombudsman NSW can review your energy bills (please bring one or two on the day). Explain the billing. Check entitlements to energy rebates and discuss energy savings in the home. In addition we can explain the Energy Made Easy Website and tariffs, time of use rates, how to compare contracts and more. We can also take complaints on the day for further investigation.

  • Energy Smart Strata

    Energy Smart Strata work with executive committees and building managers to reduce common area energy usage and costs. Gareth Huxham has been working with strata complexes for over 10 years conducting energy audits and managing upgrades. Gareth can help you understand the energy efficiency issues and opportunities for your building: lighting (car park, fire stair, lobby, exterior), ventilation, air conditioning, pumps, pool, lifts, and the opportunity to install solar. Gareth also specializes in energy procurement, billing and tariff analysis. Bring in a copy of your recent energy bill and Gareth can provide a quick spot check to make sure your not paying too much.

  • Envirotecture

    Envirotecture designs elegant and affordable homes that work well, feel good, and are culturally appropriate – and reduce their ecological cost toward zero. We have over 35 years experience in sustainable design, combining traditional and organic sustainability with proven and emerging technologies.

    Envirotecture has received numerous peer design awards, community and sustainability awards.

  • Hebden Architects

    We consider the long-term use of a building during its life-cycle in order to make it truly liveable. Our design approach allows for easy adaptability in response to the changes in life of the inhabitants, creating long-term, meaningful occupation. To achieve this also requires maximising the potential of each client’s unique site, brief and budget. We design the “right fit” for the site by responding to place and optimising the connection to natural light and ventilation. In this way we address sustainability in terms of social, environmental and economic factors.

  • Tony Edye & Associates

    Tony Edye and Associates’ philosophy is to work closely with our clients to achieve a comfortable, minimal footprint and a beautiful home through ecologically sustainable design. Our award winning home and office aims to be ‘off-grid’ and comprises many sustainable initiatives which inform and demonstrate our architectural design philosophy, including renewable energy, polished ‘green’ concrete floors, double glazed windows, LED lighting, FSC certified timber, and zero VOC paints and finishes. We have more than 25 years in practice perfecting a balance between passive and active design, which results in buildings which are thermally more comfortable, less resource demanding and visually stimulating whilst attending to the everyday needs of busy people.

  • Your Abode

    At your abode we specialise in the design and construction of green, sustainable living environments. Every one of our projects is the distillation of our desire to create houses that are as sustainable as possible, whilst being truly unique, inviting and genuinely well crafted. We believe that houses and renovations should be designed and built with the maximum consideration for their environmental impact and their effect on the health of the occupants.
