Sanctuary 56 is available now! Build green, build beautiful, build affordable. Australia's best magazine for people looking to build and renovate sustainably. Discover the latest design ideas and cutting-edge green technology, the best ethical technology and furnishing buys, and tips and solutions to help you create a comfortable home for life.
Inside: Sanctuary 56 is our Sustainable House Day special, tying in with this year’s event themes with deep dives into building and design, retrofitting, building materials and climate resilient homes. We take a closer look at nine homes opening across Australia, including an owner-built hemp masonry house and a 9-Star urban strawbale build with clean, modern lines. There’s a pair of Passive Houses just completed at The Cape ecovillage in Victoria, a renovation to a classic Queenslander showcasing gold-standard flood-resilient design, and a ‘deep energy retrofit’ to a Mittagong fibro cottage. Meanwhile in Bendigo, simple design and savvy sourcing of materials allowed Liz to achieve her dream sustainable house for just $210,000. In a new series, ‘Experts explore’, three familiar Sustainable House Day faces share their latest knowhow: Andy Marlow writes about achieving good indoor air quality in increasingly airtight homes; Uta Green explains how she used the design of her practice’s new office as a testing ground; and Perth duo Sid Thoo and Dannielle Robertson explore the value of carefully-targeted retrofits for thermal comfort. We visit a Sydney apartment exhibiting innovative ‘green ceramic’ building products made from glass and textile waste, and introduce you to the city dwellers paving the way in the growing urban homesteading movement – plus much more.
