Eco Balanced - Sustainable Prefab Retreat by EcoLiv (1)

EcoLiv Sustainable Buildings have designed Eco Balanced, a single story prefab retreat on the rugged coastline of Victoria, Australia. Ecoliv Sustainable Buildings are architecturally designed modular homes with inspiring, functional living spaces and a minimum 7 star energy rating. The building is 100% sustainable prefab home and was built in 14 weeks.

The Eco Balanced is a finely tuned yet modest design, which significantly exceeds expectations for its typology. Its contemporary form and streamlined layout combine a holistic approach to solar design and systems integration which contributes to aspirations of sustainability by achieving an 8 star thermal rating. Featuring a range of upgraded products this home is an ultra-modern take on our standard rage of construction inclusions.
