Sustainability key to affordable living

Innovative affordable housing models have emerged in Fremantle, with three developers pushing the envelope of sustainability and lifestyle. 

Not-for-profit organisation Access Housing this month opened a $4.6 million affordable housing development in Fremantle it says is the first solar-powered project of its kind in Western Australia.

Designed by Donaldson & Warn and built by Western Australian construction company JAXON, the project is being tenanted by members of the Fremantle-based Sustainable Housing for Artists and Creatives (SHAC) cooperative, and features 12 residences (nine have already been leased), and two communal art studios.
