Come and see us at The Big Weekend during the Sustainable Living Festival at

Birrarung Marr, Melbourne from 9th to 11th February.

Green Design Solutions focuses on helping homeowners to create liveable, healthy, sustainable homes, for new homes and renovation projects.

Our Design Service incorporates stylish, contemporary and clever design features that allow you to have a comfortable home and reduce your energy and have a smaller ecological footprint. We use our extensive experience in Town Planning to prepare and manage the planning application for you. We manage the frustration and complexity of the application process for you.

This special weekend is part of the Sustainable Living Festival bringing a vital message of sustainability to the forefront of our nation’s consciousness.

It’s a particularly important festival for me and Green Design Solutions as I will be launching Tiny House Solutions, where we have been building a prototype Tiny Home that incorporates eco-friendly construction and fittings. Tiny homes are now being discussed as an alternative to the traditional house and land models to help reduce the mortgage burden and rent trap for many. Our Tiny House will only require a water supply to be completely self-sufficient.

Sustainable Living Festival 2018

The Sustainable Living Festival brings the vital message of sustainability to the forefront of our nation’s consciousness. Now in its 19th year, the Festival is Australia’s largest event of its type running throughout the entire month of February 2018.

Green Design Solutions is delighted to be involved in this important festival where people get to see the latest in products, services, and ideas designed with the environment in mind. 

It’s a particularly important festival for me and Green Design Solutions as I will be launching the Green Design Studio, a prototype Tiny Home that incorporates eco-friendly construction and fittings. The Green Design Studio only requires a water supply to be completely self-sufficient. 

There is a ground-swell of support for Tiny Homes and I am proud to demonstrate to anyone interested in this new compact way of living how we can help you achieve this while caring for the environment. The Green Design Studio embodies all my principles of creating a more sustainable way of living, where we reduce our environmental footprint while still enjoying a comfortable way of life. 

Keep a watch on this space to see the progress of this exciting development for Green Design Solutions. 

We will be taking orders for the construction of our tiny houses soon so if you have any questions or would like to place an order, contact me now. 

  

I am excited to share my recent testimonial video of two solar passive designed homes in Kew. It has been a pleasure to work with John Cichello and Cynthia Cichello to design these sustainable homes with a small footprint. If you are looking for a sustainable housing solution then contact Green Design Solutions to discuss how we can realise your dream.
