Quietly tucked away and nestled at the edge of the mangroves lies a three bedroom home with two living areas, generous decks, a large garage and an additional storage room under the separate upper studio that can be rented independently from the home.

Minimising long-term environmental impact was a high priority in the design of this new home, which features a green roof to reduce stormwater run-off and help lower impact on the nearby waterways, solar hot water and solar power, high levels of insulation and passive design, which all work together to lower the footprint now and into the future.
