Event Details

Description

The Castlecrag Sustainable walking tour will focus on a variety of houses showing different aspects of sustainability and the overall impact of Griffin's design for the suburb of Castlecrag.    

You will have the opportunity to go inside 2 architect designed houses and hear about the passive solar ideas which have been incorporated.  'Most architects incorporate sustainability elements in their designs without knowing it, as this is how architects have been taught', said tour leader and architect Ben Gerstel.   

'The design principles of the passive solar energy house in Australia are becoming more popular as the public realise and understand the potential savings these principles can bring', said Ben Gerstel.

Castlecrag was recognised as a special place by Canberra’s designer Walter Burley Griffin and his partner Marion Mahoney.  They made a plan for Castlecrag to be developed as the perfect garden suburb, with small houses surrounded by trees and rocky outcrops.

This Sustainable Walking Tour has been developed especially for Sustainable House Day.
