It was also featured on popular Foxtel Lifestyle Channel TV show, Grand Designs.

The owner-builder and designer responsible for this property is Chris Knierim and he captured Grand Designs’ audience and the design world for his use of sustainable materials and his adoption of environmentally-friendly building. Cameras followed Mr Knierim as he built ECO house from the ground up in a purely urban environment located in Forest Lodge in Sydney’s Inner West.

Jennifer Aaron of Jennifer Aaron Real Estate said, “You won’t find another property like that in the city of Sydney; the quality of finishes you don’t find much these days. The house has sort of set its benchmark.” These finishes and features include custom cabinetry, polished concrete, connectivity and in keeping with the Eco theme a green room and vertical garden.

Take a look at the highlights from the Grand Designs episode.
