CplusC Architectural Workshop has built a house in Sydney with recycled materials, a rooftop vegetable garden and an aquaponics system containing edible fish.
The project, with its solar panels, gardens and pond for edible perch, was designed in response to the climate emergency to be a model for more sustainable urban living.
And a complete roof structure was designed to hold all the drainage for the open-air pond and planters for beds of fruit and vegetables.
Nitrogen-rich wastewater from the fishpond, which is located between the home's outer facade and inner skin on the first floor, irrigates and fertilisers the garden. Rainwater drains into an underground tank, is filtered and pumped back up to the pond.
