Architect or Building Designer?


By reaching these goals we hope to have designed spaces that are pleasing to the eye and encourage harmony, health, vitality and wellbeing.

At ECOLIBRIUM, our building designs incorporate established sustainable architecture principles such as passive solar design, excellent ventilation and the incorporation of thermal mass. All materials specified in the design are carefully considered to minimise environmental impacts before, during and after construction. The result is a building that has minimal impact and is comfortable and healthy to live in. Sustainable property planning designs aim to guide you (short or long term) to create a productive system that provides you with a sustainable food and resource supply that will enhance your lifestyle and that of the surrounding environment. The combination of building design and property planning goes a long way towards the ultimate in sustainable design and living. When the built environment works in harmony with the natural environment (the garden/property) and vice versa, resource, water and energy usage can reach its highest efficiency.
