OUR SUSTAINABILITY AMBITION

Going further.

Further, towards a place where design is more than green, it’s restorative.

Where buildings give back to the people that inhabit them, to the land they’re on and the resources they draw from.

Where pioneering modern architecture forges a unity between design and nature. Embracing the aesthetic and fitting seamlessly into their environment and culture.

This is regenerative design. This is the future.

Future-designed spaces that foster well-being.

Buildings that are living, inspired and beautiful.

It’s not a dream. It’s already here.

Join the evolution.

Established in 2012, the Living Future Institute of Australia (LFIA) is an Affiliate of the International Living Future Institute (ILFI).
