5×4 Hayes Lane Project

Residential | R01

The 5×4 Hayes Lane Project is a unique, inner-city dwelling set on a tiny footprint – just five by four metres. The entire building is designed, built and powered with passive and active eco-driven processes, materials and performance considerations. The project demonstrates and encourages discussion around sustainable living, a healthy form of densification in the city of Melbourne, and how to achieve this through best-practice design and living. The project uses the One Planet Living® principles as its guide for the physical design of the project, and its adaptation around behaviour to reduce ecological footprints in the city. It also acts as a platform to disseminate progress and learnings from the process through.
