The Cape Sustainable Development

Seastar was a joy to build and it is a true celebration on the beauty and ingenuity of what a sustainable house should be.

From the very outset, we have been meticulous in the way we have approached the build. From the north facing aspect, the products and materials we used to the passive solar design principles and recycled glass insulation chosen, Seastar epitomises what is possible today with sustainable housing. Every square metre of this home represents the very achievable sustainable objective all Australian builders can aspire to and deliver. Seastar has a 4.8kW solar voltaic system, and been rated 8.1 Stars
