2019 HIA Australian GreenSmart Multi-Dwelling Development

Winner: Steele Associates, New South Wales

Steele Associates took out the title of 2019 HIA Australian GreenSmart Multi Dwelling Development with its Alexandria project, The Fern. This development brings sustainable design and urban living together with passivhaus apartments that enjoy high-performance glazing, continuous unbroken insulation, stringent airtightness and heat recovery ventilation, without compromise on location. 
 
Highlights include a 25kW solar photovoltaic array, custom joinery to optimise storage, and thoughtfully designed kitchens and bathrooms with luxurious finishes that will last.
 
One judge commented: ‘this is the best considered apartment building I’ve seen to date, it [contains well-thought-out], beautifully delivered passive homes’.
 
The homes embrace aesthetic trends and finishes with consistent attention to the overall environmental impact. The exposed concrete walls were made up with 40 per cent recycled materials and reusable modular steel formwork. Low-VOC paint was used throughout while the floors, tiles and benchtops were crafted from natural materials such as marble and oak. 

FINALISTS 

  • Halcyon Lakeside, Halcyon Constructions (Queensland)
  • Lightwood ‘Bula Bula Galk’, Scalise Studios and Sustainable Homes Melbourne (Victoria)
