Orange Project | Ecoliv

Set against Orange's breathtaking scenery and rich heritage, this project is both an inspiration and a transformative force. The Orange Project weaves a family's dream into reality in the heart of New South Wales. Nestled in this vibrant country town the location provides the canvas for an extraordinary sustainable and innovative journey. Excited to build their dream family home on a 19-acre property, Eliot and Mysie reached out after realising the lengthy wait for a local builder. Opting for an Ecoliv custom prefab modular home ensured on-time delivery, a hallmark of our construction process. The resulting home design seamlessly integrates with its surroundings, offering functionality, climate responsiveness, and remarkable energy efficiency, boasting a rare seven-star energy rating in the challenging climate zone. Driven by a passion for low-impact, eco-friendly living, the family incorporated a 14-kilowatt solar panel system and a 40-kilowatt hour battery for both home and car power. Their geothermal heating system, extensive rainwater harvesting, and sustainable wastewater treatment underscore their commitment to a greener lifestyle. The family are also adopt a regenerative agriculture approach embracing native revegetation, biodiversity enhancement and permaculture principles to become more self-sufficient. Their story goes beyond creating a wonderful family home; it's about actively making choices that pave the way for a more sustainable future for generations to come.

Mallacoota Project | Ecoliv

The Mallacoota Project is a deeply heartfelt undertaking to rebuild a family holiday home that was impacted by devastating bushfires in 2019. The project's primary objective was to create a haven for future generations to enjoy, while seamlessly integrating with the beautiful natural coastal reserve surrounding the Croajingolong National Park. Adding to the emotional weight of the project, the owner, who was nearing the end of her life, expressed a strong desire to witness the home's resurrection and spend precious time within its walls once again. This poignant motivation instilled a sense of urgency, emphasising the need for a swift and efficient rebuild which was realised through prefabricated modular construction methods. To achieve this vision, the home was designed to harmonise with its environment and prioritise sustainability and resilience. Constructed to BAL 29 rating, the exterior features Silvertop Ash Shiplap cladding in both natural and charred finishes – a respectful ode to the site and its story. The Mallacoota Project serves as an inspiring example of how to rebuild and create a sanctuary in harmony with nature. By prioritising sustainability, resilience and site respectful design, this project not only provides a cherished family holiday home but also contributes to the preservation and appreciation of the surrounding natural beauty for generations to come.

The site is also particularly windswept and faces out to Bass Strait across Phillip Island. The project was delivered in two stages with the first, to install waste treatment, water collection and a photo-voltaic power supply, along with a substantial services structure. The second stage was prefabrication and installation of 5 modules, transported via barge across Westernport bay. The new farmhouse is unusual in its form adopting a courtyard model rather than the more traditional verandah surrounding a central block. This provides a protected outdoor space away from the winds sweeping in from the seaward side. The new steel and Australian Hardwood clad dwelling sits above the ground to make the most of the 270 degrees of views that look out to sea, along the bay and across the rolling pastures of French Island.
