Ecokit was born out of a frustration with the status quo. It started in 2015 as an idea for a simple, compact structure that would be comfortable, well insulated and built out of non toxic materials. It was not a commercial venue at that point either, only a one off design for our founder, Camilla.
The concept of a small DIY eco house was born as an alternative solution to dwellings that could be easily built by an inexperienced owner builder and on a much lower budget than the standard Australian home.
A few criteria were paramount during the planning & design phase: The simplicity of the build, the materials and the affordability. Another focus was on the functionality and how the house was to adapt to different stages of the occupant’s life.
