23 Styles St, Alawa – Focus on edible and cooling garden features, recently renovated to maintain as much original material as possible, passive cooling, and cross breeze. Solar electricity providing most of household needs.
14 Kapalga St, Tiwi – An example of guerilla solar and how to live sustainably in a rental property.
13 Jacksonia Circuit, Nightcliff – Architect and Eco designed, the “Pink House” is a prototype for tropical suburban housing on smaller blocks.
155 Flynn Circuit, Bellmack – This house could be mistaken for a typical suburban home but with a few thoughtfuly designed features it is transformed into a house that never needs to turn on the aircon.
