    In collaboration with Clare Cousins Architects, the Sociable Weaver have designed Australia’s first 10 star rated, carbon positive and zero waste home in Cape Paterson.
    Pioneers of the Australian design and building industry,The Sociable Weaver is dedicated to creating sustainable homes that encourage connection to nature and promote wellbeing. This luxurious home showcases contemporary architectural, design and sustainable innovation and we're so thrilled to have Totem Road finishing off the space.

    Imbued with Feng Shui design principles, permaculture integration and considered recycling processes, this carbon positive home self-heats and cools; which means zero energy costs and utility bills for the end user. It also produces more energy than it requires which offsets neighbours emissions.
    Built to give back to nature, the 10 Star Home has an undisputed positive impact for the planet by increasing energy efficiency, but it also has a significant positive impact on the homeowner.

    Designed with a deeper intention to connect residents to nature and promote a healthier more balanced state of mind and being, The 10 Star Home has unprecedented energy efficiency and a zero waste philosophy, built entirely using non-toxic materials -  from the building materials right through to the furniture, bed sheets and the interior’s styling accessories.


    Sustainability was the key driver for this project and Totem Road's sustainably sourced solid oak corresponds perfectly to these design considerations. The Totem RoadMuse andAria beds were selected for this standout dwelling.
