Introducing the Wallan House

A project we have getting close to starting construction has come about from the tragic loss to bushfire of a house our clients built over thirty years ago.

Our clients built their original house as part of the solar passive design movement in the 1970's and operated it with autonomous water systems and solar hot water for decades.
