Our Recipe Housing Approach

Recipe Housing is a design and building approach by Sustainable that considers elements of the building site and building pods as “ingredients” for truly sustainable homes.

​Just like a food recipe, Recipe Housing adapts the ratios of site and design ‘ingredients’ to respond to each site and client requirements.

The result is individual, bespoke homes and communities that respond and reflect to their environment whilst delivering high environmental performance over a 25 year life cycle.

With over 60 Australian housing industry awards, including Australian Greensmart Energy Efficiency awards and Greensmart Home of the year awards, Sustainable is recognised as a Queensland leader in affordable, environmentally friendly, and bespoke homes.

 “Brett and his team have been fantastic to deal with. The house achieves a level of environmental sustainability we had only dreamed about when we started this project two years ago. Brett’s experience in designing zones for large families, and our shared passion for minimal environmental impact while maximising the passive elements of the Queensland climate has resulted in the home of our dreams.”  Paul – Recipe House @ Samsonvale
