Tasmanian off-grid home inspires sustainable living.

For nature-lovers Peter and Robyn Tuft, moving from the Sydney suburbs to 80ha of pristine Tasmanian forest was a no-brainer.

Vantage Point.

Small but perfectly formed – this home in southern Tasmania was customised to the clients’ needs, and their budget.

Going off-grid makes it easy being green for Kettering couple.

For Peter and Robyn Tuft, their dream just happened to be long and thin, but more importantly, it was an off-grid house that ticked all of the sustainability boxes.

Fusion palate: Frank Restaurant & Bar.

With its ten-storey height, tinted commercial glazing and bulky presence in Sullivans Cove, the Marine Board Building is not Hobart’s favourite.

Room of the Week: A Locally Made, Sustainable Cottage Kitchen.

The desire to swap melamine for recycled and FSC-certified timbers led to a funky and functional kitchen, in yellow.

Jumping off-grid.

In the heart of Tasmania’s conservation bushland, this woodsy pavilion-style home shows how to maximise energy and water generation for low-cost living.

Holly Tree Farm / Cykel Architecture.

The home was completed early 2012. The client delivered a rich and diverse brief. The site stunning and varied, To the south are forested hills, to the north cherry orchids and to the east the Huon river.

A KETTERING couple’s off-grid dream home has been recognised in the Housing Industry Association’s Green-Smart Awards.

Tasmanian company Skookom won the national energy efficiency award for Peter and Robyn Tuft’s home.

Passion project.

A deceptively simple, low-energy home gives two Tassie tree-changers the breathing space they wanted to pursue their passions.
