35 years of building design experience and early adoption of energy rating tools places F2 as a leader in the field of energy efficient house design. Tim Adams has investigated zero energy design responses for a number of years and was the instigator of the highly successful 10 Star Challenge in 2011 when President of the Building Designers Association of Victoria.
Houses that have high performance passive attributes are more comfortable to be in and reduce running costs at the same time as minimizing environmental impact. A little consideration at conceptual design stage will reap rewards in money and pleasure for the life of the building. If the objective is given appropriate priority at the outset it is possible to create homes that have little or no running costs. This is a good result for all but of most benefit for people on fixed incomes.
Fairweather Homes headquarters is in Melbourne’s CBD. Here, director Paul Adams and his team custom-design prefab homes and sustainable modular buildings for domestic and international clients.

We’ve been designing sustainable modular homes for more than 30 years. And, as a result, our team are experts in developing and managing innovative building systems and procurement methods for all types of low and medium rise construction.
The components of our new homes and buildings are prepared off-site using state-of-the-art technology and machinery. The precision achieved means less trades are needed on site, helping you reach lock-up fast, significantly reduce your building time and wastage, and you’ll save money for quality fittings and features.
Paul Adams is a registered architect with experience in a broad range of building design and master planning projects spanning more than a decade, and prides his sustainable architecture on being socially and environmentally responsible.

Gregory Burgess Architects
Gregory Burgess Architects
The architecture of GBA is a transformative vehicle, which addresses abiding questions such as: ‘How do we endow dwelling with care?’ How can the built environment incubate human well being?’ Our buildings attempt to articulate the meaning(s) of being-at-home in the world, nurturing a future that is sustainable and caring. GBA has been the recipient of more than seventy awards, which include housing and sustainability.
Gregory Burgess has been awarded the AIA Gold Medal and an Honorary Doctorate of Architecture, University of Melbourne acknowledging his significant artistic, social, environmental and intellectual contribution. He was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for his service to architecture in the area of environmentally sensitive building design, and to the community.
“The environmental dimension of Gregory Burgess Architects’ work integrates ecological concerns into the central tasks of architecture. In an era when we still give specialist awards for sustainability, as if it were not a necessary part of the art of architecture, GBA’s work celebrates architecture as an ecological art. This is an architecture that becomes sustainable at a level beyond the technical issues of solar orientation, energy transfer and materials, embracing larger concerns about how we live and the values and forms that are worth sustaining.”
Prof Kim Dovey, University of Melbourne. Art, Community, Environment, Spirit. Architecture Australia, Nov/Dec 2004
Our homes are expressive, functional and delightful to live in. We address the human need for nature through integrating the environment into the core of every design. Our projects are enjoyable, design-and-build experiences; we prioritise your budget, and your schedule.

Modus Architects is a multi disciplinary practice whose work and methods engage with contemporary issues relating to people, place and the environment. The practice offers high quality design with a commitment to responsible and resilient architecture. Modus Architects provides a style of service that respects and complements a wide variety of clientele and organisational structures with a focus on a consultative approach whilst offering clear and confident direction and advice during design and construction.
Our design approach draws inspiration from the character of the client and intended users as well as responding directly to the building’s local environmental and built context. Respect for existing heritage buildings and local context ensure successful designs that make a positive and long lasting contribution to the local and broader built environment. Projects always involve working with clients to integrate and consider a building or region’s social & environmental context, heritage value, energy and water consumption, environmental impact, durability, health, flexibility and recyclability.
We understand that the successful integration of sustainability on all building projects must start from the initial briefing and flow through all phases of design from concept and master planning to the final fit-out and furnishing of the building. Incorporating sustainability measures in any new building can be achieved simply and efficiently by attending to the basic passive design principles in the orientation and layout of the building. A client’s commitment to sustainability will help ensure that objectives are maintained and articulated through the design and construction process, and critically, through the life of the building in its occupation, operations and maintenance.

Planet Architecture is a residential consultancy and design practice specializing in sustainable architecture for new homes and renovations. Our vision is that as many people as possible live in homes that are environmentally sound and emotionally satisfying. To this end, we have defined two work principles that guide both the design and business aspects of our practice. They are:
The good home principle
People and the environment are interdependent. This means that a home that is good for one has to be good for the other. We define a good home as a home that is just the right size for its purpose, has bright and airy rooms, keeps naturally cool in summer and warm in winter, is made of healthy materials and can be readily opened to the outdoors. It is stylish yet won’t cost the Earth. Whether we work on a new home or an existing one that needs a new life, we consistently let this vision of a good home be our main inspiration.
The complete service principle
While many defining decisions get locked in within a short period of time in the early stages of a project, we recognize that following projects to completion provides a continuity of vision, a tight control of timing and budget and an assurance that green specifications don’t get lost along the way. We pride ourselves on excellent communication and cost transparency and strive to provide an enjoyable experience for all concerned during the different stages of the process.
We are experienced with steep sites and understand the Town Planning requirements of the Manningham City Council.
