This incredible piece of architecture is a beacon of sustainable building, with designer Quentin Irvine using experimental closed loop, passive-solar, construction principles. Made entirely of recycled or recyclable materials, not only is it a stylish, country getaway, The Recyclable House in Beaufort has great air quality, comfortable light filled-spaces, a well equipped kitchen, private deck and a garden. Beautifully furnished inside and clad with Yakisugi (charred timber) and galvanised corrugated steel, this family home is the perfect place to be educated and inspired by stylish, sustainable living. All natural finishes and cleaning products have been used, making it a safe, low-tox environment.
Things we love
“While learning the building profession I identified and became frustrated with the fact that most Australian homes are essentially built with/for rubbish whether they were promoted as eco-friendly homes or not.”
~ Quentin Irvine, Designer & Owner
