Sanctuary 33 out now
Sanctuary 33 is on its way to letterboxes and newsagencies near you, full of advice and inspiration for sustainable living and building.
This issue of Sanctuary we take a look at the modern day ecovillage and the move towards urban efficiency for better sustainability outcomes. In Melbourne, we profile Nightingale, the contested evolution of Breathe Architecture’s The Commons and the second stage of the internationally acclaimed WestWyck. We also take a look at the impressive concept design for a One Planet multi-residential development in Fremantle, White Gum Valley, and the well-established urban infill pioneer Christie Walk in Adelaide, among others.
In the same vein, we consider the way the real estate market values sustainable homes, and how this might be better served with the clear communication of the benefit of green features, and disclosure of a home’s energy performance. We also delve into urban agriculture as part of the solution to reduce carbon emissions and better supply our cities with fresh produce.
Also in this issue, we feature two lovely, low-cost examples in green design – an artistic guest house in central Victoria and a family home on New South Wale’s Mid North Coast. Feedback from our recent Reader Survey tells us that there is real demand for more of these!
And as always we feature a wide range of innovative sustainable products and design tips for your home.
We also have a new prize! All readers and subscribers (current on April 29 2016) will go into the draw to win a home battery storage system from Enphase.
