It’s been a big year here at EME Design. We’ve been very busy with lots of new projects starting and older projects finishing.

Passive Butterfly has been recognised and awarded for its holistic approach to a heritage renovation, including winning the “Best of the Best” at the Sustainability Awards in Sydney 2018.


Passive House – the way of the future!

At EME we’re not good at sitting on our hands and are always keen to learn more. This year Luke and Bohemia both became Certified Passive House Designers! This was an amazing feat where both completed two full-time weeks of coursework and then a very intense exam.

Did you know there are only 118 Certified Passive House Designers in Australia!? We’re extremely proud to be a part of this small, yet growing group of enthusiasts and are looking forward to seeing more Passive House projects come to fruition all around Australia.

SASBE 2018

Luke recently attended SASBE – International Smart & Sustainable Built Environment Conference 2018 in Sydney and presented his paper “Mainstreaming Real sustainability in architecture”.

The paper won the Award for “Best Practice Paper”.
