Earthsong Eco-Neighbourhood : Buildings

By: Earthsong  06-Dec-2011

We value the sunshine and rainwater that are naturally delivered to every site. We have designed our systems to harvest these resources where we can, to reduce our reliance on bulk supply and to reduce the waste that we send off-site for others to deal with.

Recycling and Minimising Waste

All reusable materials from the two existing dwellings on the site were salvaged and reused, including the matai timber flooring and beautiful frosted glass 'tui' door reused in the common house, the rimu timber framing reused for furniture, and the old concrete cladding crushed and used for the driveway base.
