Ask An Architect about Sustainability – June Session

Have you ever wanted to ask an architect a question about what makes a sustainable home, what is green design, and how to make your current home or renovation more sustainable?

Do you have a renovation idea that you’d like to run by a local expert?

Maybe you’d like to understand how your existing home could be more tailored to suit you and your family, to be greener and leaner (power bills that is!).

You might like to know more about how a drafty old terrace could be transformed into a lighter, brighter, home – a joy to live in, and easier to be healthy in.

Or maybe you just want to meet an architect and talk design!

If you are contemplating renovating your home, inside, outside, upwards, or downwards – then this is the perfect opportunity for you. It’s June very soon and it’s time to get your renovation moving.

Cathi Colla Architects is offering you the opportunity to have an informal, no strings attached, chat with an architect. Bookings for our next session Saturday 1st June, 2019 June are now open.

Turn the House Around, Thornbury

What previous attendees have said…

“The benefit to us of the session was the time to explore our general questions about renovation ideas, and to have that combined with a discussion about the project management process.”

“I think the biggest single benefit for us was helping us take the first step by chatting to an architect about our project. It can be a daunting exercise to start, especially as first home owners, so it was a fantastic way to make it more accessible for us. We were grateful for the general guidance as it’s given us food for thought!”

Our June “Ask An Architect” Sessions have a focus on sustainable homes and conscientious residential design for renovations and extensions.



Come along to our next “Ask an Architect” Studio Session, Saturday 1st June, 2019.
