Sustainable House Day

Melbourne, VIC, Australia

Sophie Sisko

For almost two decades Sustainable House Day has welcomed members of the public and design industry alike to explore some of the most environmentally considered homes Australia wide.

The 2018 Sustainable House Day is just around the corner; Sunday, September 16 2018. The vast selection of properties vary from streamlined passive builds to boldly experimental renovations and everything in between; giving participants a broad representation of what’s happening in the way of sustainable design.

Earthship Ironbank located in SA. Designed by Earthship Eco Homes.

Providing guests the opportunity to speak to sustainable home owners who give their unbiased insight relating to products and design decisions is an invaluable resource for those considering such builds themselves. These proud home owners generously make themselves available to answer questions, and in some cases run guided tours to highlight the particular design features they are so passionate about.

Sustainable home owners have a wealth of knowledge ranging from the financial benefits of incorporating energy-efficient solutions into a home, to the enhanced comfort of living due to better airflow and temperature regulation.

While a preconceived notion of building green might still linger in some minds as something for environmentalists or that it has to look a certain way, it is becoming an increasingly more relevant part of all our futures and can come in many different packages as Sustainable House Day proves.

It is important to register before the day of the event to see what’s open near you and plan your journey, as some of the properties have limited times available to visit.
