Ecohabit is a sustainable residential architecture practice, which is a part of Fratelle. Ecohabit provides a test bed of ideas, often trialling initiatives that are rolled out in larger scale Fratelle projects including apartments, aged care, and commercial developments. We see sustainability as not just elements that are tacked on to the outside of buildings, but rather as an intrinsic part of our design approach that ensure healthy buildings and healthy lives for those that inhabit them.
We are key partners in Renew Property Collective. Renew are a collective of respected property advisors and consultants, collaborating to assist owners of aged property assets across Western Australia realise their site’s full potential through ownerled developments. We unlock redevelopment potential through a unique design approach in combination with collaborating with other development advisers. This provides owners a lever of control over development outcomes, apartment designs and development profit, whilst ensuring the currently underutilised site value is fully realised.

Innovation & Sustainability

Better project outcomes are driven by great ideas and often require a multi-faceted design approach.

We believe consideration needs to be given to all facets of the project including construction techniques, procurement strategies and design approach to achieve the best outcomes. Our passion for all construction methods, including prefabrication, timber frame and alternative materials means we understand how to deliver cost and design efficiencies.

“Sustainability is integral to every project and takes into account our responsibility to our environment, cultural significance, social connection and economic viability.” –Adrian Fratelle, Director
