Environmentally Friendly Renovations

Your home or business premises can evolve as you do.

I design passive solar renovations for clients keen to

  • Accommodate lifestyle changes – working from home, kids arriving or leaving, moving to multigenerational living
  • Create a contemporary haven in a classic home designed for a different era
  • Futureproof their homes or commercial premises against fluctuating or rising energy costs or changing personal or business circumstances

Key components of a passive solar renovation

  • Windows designed and placed to maximise views and breezes and support passive solar heating and ventilation
  • Insulation to enhance the benefits of well-placed windows by increasing thermal (heat holding) efficiency
  • Favouring sustainable building materials and high-efficiency systems and appliances

“Having recently acquired a property in Metricup we worked with Ciaran on a design that would provide a more modern and efficient internal space without losing the character of the external features.

Ciaran was absolutely spot on when it came to keeping to the timeline for each stage of the process and he met every deadline that he’d set. He worked to an agreed schedule and costing for each stage of the design process, from inception to final drawings which made it easy to follow.

Ciaran was empathetic to our needs and as we moved through the design process he was ready to assist with ideas and alterations to achieve a design that suited our budget and our need to move to the building phase in quick time. As we are on a rural property Ciaran linked us up with a variety of excellent tradespeople who worked in with him to achieve final approvals to build.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ciaran to prospective clients.”
