The Mullum Creek Design Review Committee (DRC) consists of a multidisciplinary team with qualifications in architecture, civil engineering, landscape architecture and geology. Every member of the team is deeply commited to and expert in environmentally and socially responsible development. Its professional approach is informed also by much experience and ongoing engagement in the fields of teaching, owner-building, IT, material and performing arts, farming and beekeeping, and social and political advocacy. Paul Haar, Raphie Kruse, Jessica Hogg and Jessamie Yule work from the office of Paul Haar Architect. Jo Henry from Henry Landscape Design is our landscape design consultant. Megas C Louis from Megarch Design Services provides us special expertise with construction, visualisation and analysis of 3-D CAD models. And Tsai-Ying Hsieh (Alfie) is our translator and interpreter for Chinese speaking families in the Mullum Creek community.
The DRC has been established for the purposes of:
- Reviewing and approving each homeowner’s proposed building and landscape designs, as satisfying the objectives and requirements of the Mullum Creek Design Guidelines.
- Providing design support with a particular emphasis on environmentally sensitive design.
- Assisting homeowners and designers to navigate each stage of the design development process.
The DRC reviews designs submitted under Mullum Creek incentive, preliminary schematic building designs, developed schematic building designs, pre-construction documentation and developed landscape designs. During this review process, the DRC supports Mullum Creek lot owners and their designers with advice geared to optimising the environmental performance of new homes for the estate. It does this through face-to-face contact, phonecalls and emails, and by providing detailed infosheets. This oversight by the DRC will encourage consistency and coherence in the form, visual character and environmental performance of both constructed dwellings and landscapes throughout the estate
