Dream green homes near completion

Year 4 students hosted their UTS Design and Architecture student buddies as they finalised their green dream home projects.

It was all hands on deck to finish the models ahead of their presentations.

The projected included hearing from architects, drawing up plans and creating models featuring their “green” elements, such as grey water recycling, solar panels, roof gardens, compost bins, battery power storage, vegetable gardens, vertical gardens, wind turbines, use of renewable materials and even chickens and worm farms.

“The kids are so brilliant,” said UTS third year Design and Architecture student Danica Crug, who added that she loved working with IGS students. “They know a lot.”

All the IGS students said they enjoyed their projects, even though they had to work quickly in their teams to complete their models.
