Biophilic Design for the City of Hope Eco Housing


This entry relates to the biophilic design of the ‘City of Hope’ development in Coffs Harbour, NSW. The project aims to explore and demonstrate the viability of some of the most advanced measures of sustainability possible in the built environment today and to do this in the small-scale context of a regional Australian town. The construction of the buildings is now complete and the project enters its next stage of measuring and monitoring performance, producing educational materials about the operation and performance of the project. These materials will be shared with the general public to inspire, educate and engage with others to make change.
