Sustainable design features

As Sustainable Home Buderim is an existing home, it will be altered to better address the site's climate, which has a favourable aspect. This refurbishment will also be integrated with its new extension, which incorporates sustainable design. The existing home is being retained to demonstrate how existing homes can be affordably upgraded by using sustainable design and features.

Construction type

Existing brick veneer walls and slab on ground floor. New lightweight construction and slab on ground.
