Passive Solar And Sustainable Building Design
Solar and sustainable homes are what we are passionate about. Design for Seasons offers a building design service specialising in solar, energy efficient, environmentally sustainable homes and buildings.
Buildings that are energy efficient, thermally comfortable and as individual as the owners.
Appropriate use of materials includes rammed earth, brick, stone, timber, steel, concrete or innovative composite building systems and materials. These are combined to create buildings that harmonize with the environment, suit the local climate and meet your vision and needs.
Areas of design include individual houses, renovations and additions, group housing developments, commercial developments and community buildings.
We can help make
your vision a reality
Why consider solar building design?
Here are some of the benefits:
Using the free energy of the sun and cooling breezes to enhance comfort levels.
Appropriate building orientation to best take advantage of the site conditions and local climate.
The use of natural light resulting in airy and well lit spaces.
Less reliance on mechanical heating and cooling resulting in lower energy bills and reduced greenhouse gases.
Building my new home with Design for seasons was an enjoyable experience. Gary took all the stress out of the process by listening to my needs, always being available to answer questions and going out of his way to help with the myriad of choices that need to be made. His team of trades people were first class. On the building site there was always a harmonious relationship between the trades and all clearly had a great deal of respect for Gary. The result was a happy comfortable home for me with a high standard of finish. I have no hesitation in recommending Gary and his team.
We used Design for Seasons to design our home which was built in 2011. He listened to what we needed and came up with a unique house design that is eco. friendly, suits our block, fitted our budget and works brilliantly for us. We think Gary is a very good eco. designer.
Gary is very patient, he didn’t rush us and made great suggestions during the planning process. He has succeeded in producing a design we really love. Gary and his associates did the hard work but we feel this is truly our home.

Design for Seasons provided a comprehensive and well prepared set of documents for the build. This comprised :- Civil, Structural and Architectural drawings, detailed Specification and build cost estimate.
We had a basic floor plan in mind and specified space and light as being vital. The end result was exceptional. Any comments we had were heeded.
Design for Seasons were very good at understanding our requirements and provided a lot of input in terms of sustainability and interior and exterior design.
We have participated in four Sustainable House Day open days and have had a very good response (given the travel distance from Perth) both in terms of visitor numbers
appreciation of the design.
