Sustainable beach houses at Freo

FREMANTLE architects Michael Patroni and Richard Longley are giving potential land buyers at LandCorp’s South Beach estate the chance to view sustainable housing concepts for beachside living. Mr Patroni’s designs include the Sail and Anchor Hotel in Fremantle and the Queens Hotel in Mt Lawley. The commissioned designs will go on show when the estate’s sales office opens for business next month. Located at the end of South Terrace in Fremantle, the four-hectare South Beach estate comprises 32 residential lots ranging in size from 308 square metres to 511sq m. Six group housing lots varying from 921sq m to 3424sq m have also been earmarked for development. The homes proposed are reminiscent of practical beach houses with solar passive design elements to ensure the homes remain comfortable in summer and winter without the need for mechanical cooling or heating. Landscaping works are almost complete at the site and Fremantle artists Anne Neil, Steve Tepper, and sculptor Tony Pankiw of Innaloo are due to complete their installation of public artworks in time for the land release.
