Why select the Recipe Housing approach?

Recipe Housing offers an affordable solution for building environmentally friendly, personalised and bespoke homes that reflect the Queensland lifestyle.

The Recipe Housing approach delivers a range of benefits that can be applied to a single home build, cluster of residential homes on the one block, or a community development.

These benefits are best summed up as:

  • Flexible   Pod approach means the size and placement of pods can be adjusted to meet site constraints and maximise sustainability outcomes for years to come.
  • Economic Outlay  Recipe Housing seeks to sit within the existing environment, reducing the need for initial earth works and retaining walls, and the design approach of the pods creates excellent economy of materials.
  • Time Efficient Pod approach allows for rapid builds meaning you are in your home sooner!
  • Individual No two sites are the same; no two families are the same; and therefore, no two Recipe Housing homes are the same!  In addition to designing to fit to the site, Recipe Housing offers a buyers a range of pod configurations, exterior facades, and roofing.
  • Economic Running Costs   The embedded sustainable design of Recipe Housing reduces the living costs over the life cycle of the home.

In short, Recipe Housing approach adapts no matter your site or preferences and delivers an affordable, beautiful home that reflects and responds to its setting.

For example, using the same number of pods and thus square metres for living and sleeping, this home can be configured in multiple ways to step down a sloping site, to take advantage of those views, or build beside that great tree.
