The Cape Ecological Community in Australia

The Cape is a residential community located in southern Victoria, Australia that boasts 130 homes that all feature passive solar, solar power and rainwater harvesting, as well as EV charging infrastructure. The residences are purposely designed for year-round comfort, oriented to maximize natural light and ventilation.
Strait House (pictured above) is designed for the Australian climate, with thermal mass construction to ensure year-round comfort with minimal heating or cooling. Strait House uses local materials and showcases a commitment to environmental responsibility throughout its design.

Some of the homes can grow significant amounts of fresh produce, reducing reliance on grocery stores and waste.
