  • 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.

  • Mark Davis Design

    Mark Davis is an Accredited Building Designer who focuses solely on Sustainable Design & Building.  His experience started 20 years ago when he began building his own sustainable home.  Subsequent study & exploration led to his career sharing this passion with others.

    Mark has won two awards for his work, holds various positions within the Building Designers Association of Australia, including the Director of Technical Development, & teaches Building Design.  His homes have been open to the public for a number of Sustainable House initiatives, to showcase the philosophies.

    Mark Davis Design’s business model is to provide a high level of service to clients & to work closely with builders from as early in the design process as possible, providing an integrated approach utilising everyone’s experience to achieve a high quality, cost effective and comfortable home than will last the ages.
