For many, Oxford St is a home away from home, but this month, thanks to the City of Sydney, there really will be a small house set up on Taylor Square.
Built using cutting-edge technology and innovative ideas for reducing waste and energy consumption, the Live Green House will be a true example of environmental best practice.
The house opens on October 15, and for three days will showcase cost-effective ideas like eco linen, balcony gardening, solar panelling and self-cleaning pavement tiles. The 25 square metre house will also play home to some beautiful and clever design pieces, including chairs made from road signs, lights made from plastic bags, bags made from juice containers and jewellery made from recycled goods.
Lord Mayor Clover Moore has called it a “one-stop shop” for anyone interested in making their homes more environmentally-friendly.
“Visitors to the house will be able to talk to sustainability experts and see practical examples of sustainable living for every room in the house — from the bathroom to the kitchen and even the balcony,” she said.
Visitors will be able to speak to the house architect, Martin Urakawa, and other experts to pick up tips on government rebates and sustainable building products.
