Twenty of Adelaide’s most spectacular green homes will throw open their doors on Sunday, September 15 for Sustainable House Day 2019.
The annual event offers a rare look inside exceptional (usually private) energy-efficient homes designed with healthy, environmental and low-cost living in mind.
Visitors can peruse a tiny house and studio in Crafers West; a two-storey timber-clad box in Aldgate; SA’s first 10-star home in Woodforde (currently still under construction); and Australia's first Zero Carbon Home in Campbelltown. Designers include TS4 Living, A-Ha! Studio, Suho Studio and Goodhouse Architecture.
The national event is run by Renew, a non-profit organisation that provides independent advice on sustainable housing.
“Everyone wants a home that is well-designed, healthy and runs efficiently in an age of high energy bills,” says Renew CEO Donna Luckman. “Sustainable House Day allows Australians to see real homes that have achieved this, and get unbiased advice on how to make their homes more comfortable and cheaper to run."
