Accessible housing was “The Australian Dream”, based on universal principles of accessibility, inclusiveness, responsibility, affordability and a place for everyone.
We’re bringing these values back.
Currently our housing system doesn't let us live in alignment with the way we feel about our environment and our communities. And while many of us feel a big desire to live more responsibly and address the issues we see around us, the Australian housing market won’t let us live in this way.
We don't need to be stuck in this system any more...
PassivePlace is a social enterprise driven by purpose and passion to create better housing outcomes for our communities and our environment.
We like solving big problems, and this starts with small decisions…like the way we live, how we design, how we build, how we share, the smile we give to a stranger and how we help those and the environment around us.
We like to help people and communities. We like to see the difference we can make to assist people realise their aspirations and be part of the change we all need to be and see.
Creating a better world one community at a time. Contact us and start a journey....
Create the most responsible homes that enable environmental communities.
Measure and improve the positive impact of everything we do – socially, environmentally and economically.
Engage, support and nurture our residents and our communities.
Contribute to a more just and equitable world to deliver on solutions for our environmental crisis.
We empower people and communities to live the way they want to.
By using place-based community design, collaborative development and environmental responsible delivery, we aim to deliver net zero affordable and accessible housing outcomes.
We use performance based design principles (Passive House) and we work towards delivering meaningful change in everything we do for the communities we work with.
Our innovation allows our homes and communities give as much as they offer: helping governments deliver on policy, giving councils the means to generate affordable housing outcomes, residents a chance to feel like they’re making a difference, and businesses a comfortable and responsible home for their employees.
We like solving big problems, and this starts with small decisions: from the way we live, to how we design and build, to how we share. Even the smile we give to a stranger and how we help those and the environment around us.
We want to share this opportunity with as many people and communities as we can. And you’re invited to join us on working towards becoming the largest supplier of Net Zero housing in Australia.
Because it's the right thing to do…
because we can…
and because it's fun!
We want to see more inclusive, accessible and responsible communities – and as many as we can.
Who wouldn't want to live in a supportive, connected community where you feel safe, included, connected, and you are living in alignment with your principles and values about the environment and the community you live within.
We think it's time more people from all over Australia have the chance to live this way; in connected, inclusive communities regardless of whether they want to own or rent a home.
We value the opportunity to create a positive social impact in everything we do as we measure and report on it to ensure we do.
We’ve made a conscious choice to partner and collaborate with nature to create regenerative communities where what sustains us, can also thrive with us.
This is the practice and implementation of biophilic and regenerative design and our commitment to bring nature into our Net Zero communities in as many ways as we can.
Supporting, sharing and inclusive communities are by their nature more affordable places to live. Resource sharing is a key to not only affordability but living responsibly on this earth while we are here.
Low energy homes and Passive House design create low cost homes to live in, reducing the cost of living and again reducing our environmental and carbon footprint. It's a win, win, win situation for us, our communities and our environment.
It also costs less to generate the energy for a low energy home, so we can save on energy generation and storage infrastructure. By using less resources to run our homes, we leave more of our resources in the ground, supporting the nature around it.
The most affordable housing is quality, high performance housing. This is good news for investors, local councils, Community Housing Providers and residents, because we’re thinking about long term benefits and impact.
It starts by how we’re using long term investment horizons, patient capital, green and impact investment. Every community we build has impact indicators and measurements, social and environmental KPIs and outcomes, integrated into our design, delivery and operational systems.
It’s how we can show you exactly what the social, environmental and economic impact of our work really is.
Placed-based collaborative design and delivery, future focused systems thinking, regenerative and biophilic principles and practices, and Passive House principles.
That's a lot of jargon isn't it? What does it mean?
Wherever we can, we use proven, evidence-based processes to deliver thoughtful, considered, quality outcomes for our communities, our people and our environment. We try to share this opportunity with as many people as we can.
We embrace radical responsibility. We are inspired by working to resolve challenges in ways that create solutions for people, the environment and industry.
So to build a better world, one community at a time, we want to work with you, because we can’t do it without you.
Our holistic approach to inclusive, environmental and affordable housing creates place-based opportunities – every step of the way. From the conversations we have with local councils, to the standards we design to, to the communities we intend to always be a part of.
