Drew - SterLand residence
When you have a lifelong commitment to sustainability, it tends to show. No less in this home of the latest sustainable technologies. The concepts are simple and they marry delightfully with beautiful material selection and a lifestyle driven by Sustainable choices. This house in Melbournes east is a life long project for Matthew Drew. Beginning in the 90's with locating his modern home in a fabulous subdivision pedestrian oriented subdivision.
Mathew asked us to assist with the installation of various living architecture elements. On the first day of installation, Matthew said he "always wanted a green roof'. We are happy we have been able to fulfil this desire to make a statement, inexpensively and with little fuss. Installed in one day with automated irrigation controlled from the cloud.
Our team worked with Matthew & Jennifer to install the MEP green roof system. Collaborating for us is all about client hands on installation. It increases the true value of all of our projects.
We went on to install a native fern vertical garden in the southern courtyard. This is a fantastic suite of native plants that perform indoors and sheltered outdoor spaces. And there is more to come on a west facing wall we are working with Mathew and Jennifer to build a native grassland on the wall.
