Environmentally sustainable design (ESD)
The Design Commission assists clients in planning sustainability strategies and specifies materials and products that meet high sustainability standards.
We engage in the research and implementation of environmentally sustainable building practices, using rigorous design to create interior spaces that are thermally comfortable, healthy and have minimal embodied energy: good for the user and good for the environment. This means using building systems, materials, paint, fixtures, fittings and furniture that are minimally polluting in their production and application, and which can be reused or recycled in the future.
ESD consultation services on building and other projects are also available, please contact us to discuss your needs.
The Design Commission was a finalist in the 2017 International Green Interiors Awards and the 2017 Sustainability Awards in the Alternation/Addition categories. Jacqueline Bosscher is a member of the Green Building Council of Australia continuing professional development program and the Design Institute of Australia.
