At last, another way of achieving your dream sustainable home …

Over the past two decades we have designed some of Western Australia’s most sustainable and innovative homes that have been recognised by multiple awards in the field. We believe more people should have access to good sustainable design and be able to enjoy the benefits of greater comfort, smaller utility bills and less impact on the environment. To achieve this goal we are proud to introduce our unique Collections of sustainable homes, providing an easier pathway and greater choice for more people .


A new research has revealed that energy efficient homes attract a premium in the market. This finding is a clear signal to builders and home owners to adopt energy efficient measures in their properties and to reduce carbon emissions.

Sometimes it makes sense to start with a blank canvas …

If you have a challenging lot or a specific wish list that cannot be achieved with a pre-designed solution, then Custom Design may be the right path for you. We have crafted award-winning homes throughout Western Australia and have the processes in place to make this an enjoyable journey.

An innovative new way to create low impact sustainable infill within existing established suburbs of Fremantle.

We are excited to launch our new Econests initiative in response to the ‘Freo Alternative’ (Scheme Amendment 63) allowing small sustainable housing in selected areas of Fremantle and its surrounding suburbs. Our unique range of low carbon, energy efficient homes and Case Studies of how to develop these Lots within the Scheme provisions is set to change the way people think about small housing and infill development.

Our range of Econests homes is also a unique take on smaller homes for Downsizing, developing compact lots and unlocking the value in your own backyard. Based around our Award and Competition winning entry for Density and Diversity Done Well, these homes are set to raise the benchmark for sustainable living at a time when our cities and suburbs are straining under overpopulation, urban sprawl, a lack of a sense of community and increasing carbon emissions.

Most community members expressed a desire to see more vibrant neighbourhoods, more people talking to each other and a greater sense of community
