Twenty of Sydney’s leading sustainable architects and building designers will be lining up at Paddington Town Hall in June, offering free advice on making your home more sustainable.
The event, ‘speed date a sustainable designer‘, is run by the Alternative Technology Association (ATA) with support from The City of Sydney and allows you a 13-minute ‘date’ with two designers of your choice to discuss projects big and small. We sat down with one of the organisers, Donna Luckman, to find out more.
Why ‘speed date’ a sustainable designer?
This will suit anyone thinking about or undergoing a home redesign project. You could be just starting out, throwing some ideas around and need inspiration. Or you could be further down the track and want to run your plans past a professional.
What should you bring?
Come prepared with a list of questions for the designer, any plans you have, and at least one picture of your home and surrounding property. Even if it’s just a printout of Google maps, the architects can help you a lot better if they can see how much space you’re working with.
Who is available to ‘date’?
We have 20 designers with different specialties and you can ask them anything you want, with no obligation to continue to work with them afterwards. Before and after your ‘date’ you can also browse booths with even more information on sustainable living, provided by the ATA.Â They offer information on solar power, solar hot water, rain water tanks and making your home more energy efficient.
The event is held at the Paddington Town Hall on 1 June.
