The Trial Bay House addition project was a large-scale eco renovation that turned this Tazmanian house into a super-sustainable and stylish coastal abode.

The renovation was designed by James Jones of Architectus and involved a total overhaul of the home as well as the construction of a new veranda, courtyard, garage, and living room. The Trial Bay House project also involved installing solar water heating and solar panels on the building's roof, as well as rain-catching technology in order to make the house as sustainable and low-impact as possible.
