The West Feature – Money St Sustainable Apartments

 

Have you seen the West Australian’s New Homes magazine write up on our sustainable apartment development in Northbridge? We have been working hard in collaboration with Griffin Group and GENiUX to design a boundary pushing low carbon footprint building in the heart of Northbridge. The mid-rise apartment building will be situated on Money Street, one of the quieter and more verdant streets close to the city. In approaching the sustainability within design, we have worked in collaboration with GENiUX, a company that provides sustainable technology to real estate developments. (Have a look at this company, https://www.geniux.com.au/, their operating model is very interesting and will encourage the property industry to transform into a more sustainable industry by providing financially viable sustainability solutions for developers). We have maximised solar passive design in the building, and utilised both on and off-site vegetation for temperature moderation and to improve the resident’s experience of the building. We have incorporated numerous technologies that will mitigate the environmental impact of the development such as shared electric vehicles for hire, electric vehicle charging stations, rooftop solar PV, individual energy monitoring systems for each apartment, and geothermal water heating. Our Reside on Money design has been featured in the Design WA Handbook on how innovation and good design principles can drive good community outcomes.
