Our Farrier Lane House features in list of Australia’s most sustainable homes

We were super excited to be included in The Guardian’s recent list of Australia’s most sustainable homes of 2023.

The story featured our Farrier Lane House and a short caption that sums up the best environmental credentials of this project:

“Designed by a young architect for his own family, this is the first true net-zero house in Western Australia. The brickwork was made using redundant stock, while other materials like cork flooring, timber cladding, timber veneers, and exposed timber beams were chosen for their low embodied carbon, and durability. A life-cycle assessment was undertaken to compare the home’s performance against established benchmarks, and gather data that will be shared and added to professional and community knowledge banks.”

This is Matt’s own house and it’s already gathering plenty of attention in Perth and around Australia, showing that it’s possible to design and build an affordable and sustainable home for a young family.

Thanks to The Guardian for helping us take our message of “architecture for all” to a wider audience.
