C.Kairouz. Creating healthy ecosytems.

C.Kairouz Architects are focusing on creating better, more socially & environmentally responsible buildings, for today and for the future.



C. Kairouz Architects are a collective of design professionals, passionate about providing high quality, affordable architecture & interior design solutions throughout Victoria, and Australia. Their focus is on creating better, more socially & environmentally responsible buildings, for today and for the future.




C. Kairouz Architects align their eco-concern focus both inside and outside their workplace/their building ideas, and they have ‘stepped up to the plate’ when it comes to helping us build a better world through the support of our native tree planting projects.

Site A | Yea, VIC | 500 trees

Over the winter months, we planted 500 trees at a revegetation project in Yea district of Murrindindi Shire, VIC on the behalf of C. Kairouz Architects. This is land of the Taungurung and Wurundjeri peoples.

A variety of species is vital to any healthy ecosystem. At this site, native species planted included: Hedge Wattle, Lightwood, Drooping Sheoak, Black Sheoak, Sweet Bursaria, Golden Wattle, Silver Wattle, Red Ironbark, White Box and Yellow Box. These trees are vital to the local wildlife as they will provide a native corridor to provide a safer passage from the creeks in the area to the fragmented outcrops of native vegetation.


A healthy ecosystem needs a variety of species of plants.


Site B | Westgate Park | 500 trees


Westgate Biodiversity includes Bili Nursery & Landcare Inc. and is a community-based not-for-profit organisation based at the foot of one of Melbourne’s most iconic and main transport arterials from the West to the city, Westgate Bridge.


Unseasonably hot and dry conditions didn’t stop the planting.


They not only grow and sell locally indigenous plants, but work passionately in transforming Westgate Park into a natural, bush-like place for people to enjoy, and habitat for amazing biodiversity. The team from C. Kairouz Architects who ventured out (20 plus family members) are truly helping with this aim. Despite the hot and windy afternoon, the team managed to plant 80 native trees, shrubs and grasses within a couple of hours. The other 420 plants will go into the ground over the course of  the following days.


More team members at work.

Individual actions really do matter! Individually we can really only make small differences to the world around us, but collectively our numbers add up. And if enough individuals are involved then forests can be grown!

We have a handful of organisations who purchase trees when they can. These organisations are masters of ingenuity when it comes to incorporating tree planting into their business practices.

The Institute of Public Accounts has supported one of our revegetation projects by purchasing a tree for every attendee at their recent Victorian Conference held in Ballarat, VIC. The trees (70) were planted in the district, in the weeks following the conference.
