Kialla West Eco-Village Masterplan
- Project: Kialla West Eco-Village Masterplan
- Location: Kialla, Victoria
- Client: Greater Shepparton City Council
- Date: 2010
- The Task:
The Kialla West Eco-Village is a boutique subdivision which sensitively incorporates an original homestead that has cultural and historical value into the new eco-village.
Our team members undertook a detailed site analysis for the site and its surrounds and liaised closely with relevant technical stakeholders to inform the preparation of a concept plan and master plan for Kialla West.
We incorporated the key principals of a true eco-village to design a self-sustainable development which utilises passive heating and cooling or buildings, water sensitive urban design practices, low impact construction methods and materials, and endemic planting palette to enhance the local ecology.
