Michael Mobbs' Sustainable House

Inner-City House
  • Neighborhood: Waterloo
  • Category: Attractions & Landmarks
  • Train: "Redfern Station

Description

Mike Mobbs, a Sydney environmental lawyer, and his lawyer wife Heather and two kids decided in 1996 to renovate their 100 year old terrace, situated in the densely populated inner-city, between two major roads. On a block less than 35 meters (115 feet) long and five metres (16 feet) wide, with vision and tenacity, they have made their home completely self-sustainable! Their home collects all its drinking water from the roof, generates its own electricity from solar panels and processes all its wastewater, including sewage, on site.
