Castlemaine Eco Town Houses

 

A pair of houses on a subdivided block in Castlemaine.  The Mt Alexander Shire has been very supportive of higher density growth in areas with good proximity to the town centre and railway station and these houses will contribute to the equitable lifestyle for which Castlemaine is becoming known.  We have placed the living room on a mezzanine level up above the kitchen in order to capture views of nearby hills.  The double height and airy interior packs a feeling of connectedness and roominess into a small 65m² footprint.

We’re exploring the up-cycling of various materials such as old refrigerator panels as insulation.   This is part of setting up a scheme with recycling and waste management centres to sort materials suitable for the building industry.  We believe waste management practice will be one of the primary economies of the next 100 years and architects are well positioned to be a proactive voice.
