Sustainable living is not about sacrificing luxuries, but about enhancing our lifestyle.
wabi sabi homes
SWALE’s aim in design and construction is to achieve the simple balance between the landscape, the environment and lifestyle pleasures within affordable budgets.
unique and personal
Our homes are intimate, gentle reflections of their surroundings and their occupants, each unique and personal.
play with your senses
With this harmony in mind, SWALE designs and constructs contemporary, minimalistic, art style homes designed to play with your senses. SWALE creates truly relaxed environments for stress-free, healthy living.
recycled wharf timbers
A fundamental aspect of our design is the materials used to create and structure the building’s form. A combination of new and recycled products play an important role, from heavy wharf timbers, creating rustic strength and warmth to big steel beams and metal sheeting to bring an element of simplicity.
SWALE uses large sheets of high performance glass to bring the outside in and large boulders as one example of grounding a building.
The use of large shipping containers complement Chris’s minimalistic box form design, creating clean lines and large cantilevers while remaining affordable.
Our homes can be custom cut & shut in the factory overseas and fitted out in by SWALE in Australia or fitted out overseas under SWALE's trained labour using our detailing.
