From Ecoshelta: “Being situated on such a remote island in such an environmentally sensitive, coastal location Ecoshelta eco pods were the perfect answer. Ecoshelta’s unique footing system meant that minimal concrete was used in the construction. Small (removable) footings 600mm x 600m were set out in a 2.5 metre grid along the building. Furthermore, Ecoshelta’s telescopic footing system allowed the building to sit above the ground without preventing the natural movement of water, soils & seeds, flora & fauna.

The passive design elements of the house with large eaves, double glazing, building positioning and louvre windows allows for easy control of internal buildings temperatures. The use of wood pellet fireplace was also a sustainable measure to ensure that energy required for heating was provided using minimal and recycled materials. All timbers for the buildings were sustainable source and locally produced native Tasmanian species meeting all FSC standards.

All water for site is harvested through rainwater catchments and the highly advanced aerated wastewater system has allowed for safe native garden bed transpiration.

Replanting of native understorey, mid-storey and upper-storey vegetation will allow for a fully restored, environmentally sound building site in years to follow with plenty of habitat for native fauna.”
