SUSTAINABLE HOUSING COFFS HARBOUR

 

BUILD

 

The build focuses on quality and sustainable architect designed homes, where we build no more than two to three homes per year, so that each one gets our full attention and personalised service.

 

We create homes that;

 

• Are comfortable all year round.

 

• Generate more energy than they use

 

• Value water. From harvesting, treating and re-using it on site.

 

• Are made using healthy building materials

 

• Incorporate roof gardens

 

• Modify the micro-climate with green walls

 

Skillful management of our trusted team of contractors and suppliers ensures short construction times and high-quality results.

I established The Natural Home Company in 2003, where I built architect-designed projects as a licenced builder. As part of the evolution of my career, I launched Schimminger Design Build Live in 2019 which combines the three principles of my work of architectural design, green and sustainable building and living within those spaces designed to have minimal impact on the environment both now and into the future.

DESIGN - BUILD - LIVE

 

The process of architectural design through to the interpretation of the builder has traditionally seen a disconnect in achieving the architect and client's ultimate vision. Reiner Schimminger has been practicing architecture for over 30 years and has also been a builder for over 20 years. This synergy means that projects undertaken by Schimminger Design Build Live, can realise the original vision of the client and designer in creating a sustainable, energy efficient and exciting building adding value for the owner and the environment.

 

If you are looking to embark on a journey of creating an energy efficient and sustainable build, get in touch and have a consultation with Reiner on how his expertise can provide you with your green print for modern living.

DESIGN

 

Imagine…. Your home as the response to the many environmental challenges that our world faces today.  A home that operates as cleanly, beautifully and efficiently as nature’s architecture.

 

A green print for modern living.

 

Aiming at the most advanced measures of sustainability in the built environment today, we aim to design homes with:

 

     - Zero GHG emissions

     - 100% renewable energy

     - Urban food production

     - Water sensitive design

     - Enhanced biodiversity

 

For a life of exquisite sufficiency.

BUILD

 

The build focuses on quality and sustainable architect designed homes, where we build no more than one or two homes per year, so that each one gets our full attention and personalised service.

 

We create homes that:

     - Are comfortable all year round.

     - Generate more energy than they use

     - Value water. From harvesting, treating and re-using it on site.

     - Are made using healthy building materials

     - Incorporate roof gardens

     - Modify the micro-climate with green walls
