Live Architecture is a Warrnambool based design and sustainability consultancy with its sights set on making the world a more liveable place, one project at a time. Fiona Golding, award-winning Director of Live Architecture, takes a personal, holistic approach to her designs, combining energy efficiency and technical expertise with a focus on local knowledge and functionality.

 

 

As part of its commitment to sustainable design and thinking local, Live Architecture has partnered with Fifteen Trees to plant 380 trees in the Warrnambool region. Fiona has also committed to planting a further 100 trees to cover her office carbon footprint and intends to plant 15 trees for every new project her team completes. This is an architect who appreciates the interconnectedness of all things and understands that sustainability is more than a star system (although it’s definitely worth noting that Live Architecture’s projects are never less than 7.5 stars for energy efficiency!!).

“There is no better time to plant a tree than today.  Fifteen Trees have made it so easy for us to create a greener future in our own backyard!” 

Fiona Golding | Director & Architect | Live Architecture

 

We love sustainable builders and architects. Building accounts for around 40% of worldwide carbon emissions, so anything that can be done to reduce the impact of the industry is a win for us all. We also love holistic thinkers. You can have the most efficient house in the world, but it needs to be balanced with practicality and comfort. Our homes are our sanctuaries.

Our landscapes are sanctuaries too. We are so pleased to partner with a firm whose business practices reflect this understanding.

This familiar face loves anyone who plants a tree!

 

“Planting of 380 trees occurred at a remote spring fed gully in Bullanbul Creek, Grassmere, SW Victoria, which had very few existing tree species. The site was wet underfoot therefore trees were planted on the higher section close to fence line and species selected survive well in wet conditions.

The owner of the property had his first experience in planting native trees and was helped by two members of the Hopkins Falls Landcare Group, which was a great experience for all involved.

Remaining trees were planted at Mosswood Wildlife Centre at Koroit providing future habitat and food source for wildlife in their care.

A huge thanks to Fifteen Trees and their generous supporters for the offer of the trees and their help to make these plantings possible.”
