Hayes Lane

The 5x4 Hayes Lane Project is a unique, inner-city dwelling set on an unusually small footprint - 5 x 4 meters! The entire build is designed, built and powered with passive and active eco-driven processes, materials and performance considerations.

The 5x4 Hayes Lane Project demonstrates and encourages discussion around sustainable living, a healthy form of densification in the city of Melbourne and how to achieve it through best practice design and living.

It uses the One Planet Living® principles as its guide for the physical design of the project, adaptation around behaviour to reduce ecological footprints in a city, and acts as a platform to disseminate progress and learnings from the process.
