The Sustainability Experts

  • David Baillie Architect

    David Baillie

    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

    Matt Day

    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.

  • Hebden Architects

    33 Karuah Garden view Low Resolution

    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.

  • Matt Elkan Architect

    Capture

    Matt Elkan specialises in small to medium sized residential projects. Sustainability is core to every project. This is expressed in siting and orientation, minimisation of site coverage, the form and scale of buildings, material selection, re-use and recycling wherever possible, and reduction in the reliance on active services. It is also expressed in creating joyful beautiful buildings. Building beautiful spaces is one of the best ways to improve sustainability by providing the motivation to preserve good buildings into the future.
