Do you want to build a smart eco-effective home that doesn't cost the earth?

Are you increasingly mindful of the impact that our homes have on climate change and the environment? Do you want to design a new home or renovation that makes a positive contribution, not just minimises harm?

Then you’ve come to the right place!


Sid Thoo is an award-winning architect, educator and consultant who can help you design a quality eco-effective home that is more sustainable and won't cost a fortune.

I help all kinds of people design and build homes and buildings that are environmentally, socially and economically more sustainable. Sustainability is a word that gets used (and abused) more often than not, so I tend to describe the work I do as eco-effective.

I also try to adopt an integral approach towards architecture, which is a fancy way of saying I try to think about all of the impacts that buildings have upon our culture, society and environment.

Get started now by learning the key passive design principles.
