Forest Lodge Eco House

Forest Lodge Eco House is an award-winning residential townhouse located in the heart of Sydney’s heritage precinct, just five minutes from the Sydney CBD.  Smartech are very proud to have been part of this project as the supplier of the double-glazed folding door for this outstanding sustainable project.

 

Code Green Pty Ltd, the designers of Forest Lodge ECO House, specialise in the consultation, design and construction of sustainable building projects with the aim to evolve urban environments into green living spaces.

Hence, this house was designed using a combination of multiple sustainable products and features such as solar-boosted hydronic heating, solar hot water, rain water tanks, roof top gardens and vertical gardens. It is also completely automated including a double-glazed Smartech folding door at the rear of the building overlooking the terrace. The folding door opens up the living space to the beautiful terrace, bringing a sense of flow between indoor and outdoor spaces of the property.

 

Since its completion, the Forest Lodge ECO House has been featured on several television series including Grand Designs Australia, Better Homes & Gardens Australia, Australia’s Best Houses, and CNN.
