A Home Reconnected with Its Community

250m2 of big possibilities; 100-years old and considered past its prime. To us, a sleeping giant that simply needed to be woken. We turned it into a well-organised, energy-efficient family home, and grew its garden back to former pride and glory. We reclaimed materials from its neighbourhood, and reclaimed its place in the community – a confident home again, loved by its new owners and admired by all.

“The Eco Alchemists’ skill in balancing the art of nature with the nature of people leads to outcomes you can not only see but you can feel. Their places are alive and vital, healthy and welcoming, livable and workable, with a touch of class and plenty of individuality.”
