The Wilds: First Carbon Neutral Detached Housing
in Inner Melbourne
Our newest and most innovative residential project, The Wilds, is a collection of 15 carbon-neutral homes located on the banks of Merri Creek in Northcote. Conceptualised by leading design firm, Edition Office, this property signifies a pivot in response to a newfound consumer focus on health, well-being and sustainability as a result of the global changes in 2020.
As such, The Wilds aspires to set a benchmark in Environmentally Sustainable Design principles and is set to become the first carbon-neutral detached housing development in inner Melbourne, with all houses 100 per cent electric and incorporating a solar panel array.
Passive solar design will be implemented at The Wilds to minimise energy use, while insulation and double glazing further reduces the homes’ carbon footprint. Forward-thinking initiatives are also being applied to surrounding areas to protect its unique creekside setting.
Located on Cunningham Street in the sought-after boutique Westgarth precinct, residents will have the rare opportunity to live in the heart of nature within convenient Northcote. Find out more in this Domain feature on how The Wilds is pushing the boundaries of responsible developments.
