Sustainability Award Winner

Gruen Eco Design Renovation, Blackburn

The client brief was to bring the cottage into the current times, make the space functional for the growing family, protect the heritage value and use sustainable features and design principles. Connecting the home to the garden and views beyond was also an important consideration.

Located in leafy Blackburn, the project is a clever example of a heritage listed two bedroom cottage being transformed into a highly energy efficient family house.

Featuring sustainable and energy efficient qualities and a double story extension, the house is now a functional home for a young family of four.
