As far back as I can remember, sustainability and energy efficiency were pare of living. In Europe you didn’t even think about it.
When I moved to New Zealand, I was in for a shock. And not just the power bills! I was convinced that there should be a way for most people to be able to afford an energy efficient, beautiful home, with a footprint that reflects our needs, environmental realities and the need to avoid waste in all its forms.
Telling people how to suck eggs was not what I was all about. I love this country and I genuinely want the best for everyone who lives here – not just the fortunate few who were able to afford the first wave of environmental homes.
It’s taken a while. A lot of research. And a big commitment. But I think we’re there. With some great local and international architects on board, builders, master craftsmen, who are among the best & most committed you’ll find anywhere.
Perhaps most importantly, I’ve got my kids onboard. After all, they’re the ones, who’ll be looking out for the future of this country.
