Greenest House takes a ‘holistic’ (whole of home) approach to sustainable home design right from the start. This allowed us to fully consider all aspects of house design, orientation, materials, smart connectivity and adaptability, which was critical to the final successful outcome.

Great communication and strong collaboration were key to the successful design and build. Gilchrist’s decision to engage Greenest House at the start of the process and our unique approach led to the successful delivery of not only an effective and affordable sustainable house, but more importantly a beautiful, comfortable and healthy home, that is resilient to climate change and adaptable to changing family needs.
The final result went beyond the expectations of both the homeowner and Gilchrist Homes and shows the power of great collaboration and good design.

The Greenest House method and design approach enables us to get to know our clients’ requirements, and then work with the building designer/architect and builder to achieve effective solutions and reduce costs.
In the project above, liveability of the home was substantially increased, and we achieved a carbon negative design. Greenest House uses a multiple approach method in creating the right design to benefit the client, the builder and the environment.
