Concern about urban sprawl and current townhouse developments made two couples decide to join forces “towards a sustainable community”. They purchased a block close to the Perth CBD to create a small scale inner city living environment which aims to be a showcase of sustainability, promote community feel and encourage creativity, while maintaining high quality. They hope to encourage others through this showcase project options for future increased density development within inner city environs, generate interest and inspire real change. Eugenie will share the journey thus far.
Eugenie moved to Australia from The Netherlands in 2000. In Australia she has worked with environmental organisations which increased her interest in and concern about the environment and sustainability. She is currently studying towards a Master in Sustainable Urban and Regional Planning at Murdoch University.
