Nick Radford (Ecoliving Design), Tricia Helyar, Anna Fisher (Fisher Design + Architecture) and Guido Eberding (Kalang Design House)

The Bellingen Energy Festival is an annual event aimed at bringing together practitioners from many fields to engage with the public about energy use and sustainable living. The festival is committed to improving and promoting sustainable living practices and design, sustainable energy technology and products, and community education.

Fisher design + Architecture joined the ‘Bellingen Architects Bus’ this year, a sustainable design information stall hosted by six Bellingen architects and building designers, who came together to offer advice and be available to answer questions regarding sustainable design and materials.

The Architects Bus contained a wealth of local experience designing environmentally friendly buildings, and included Steve Gorrell, Guido Eberding (Kalang Design House), Richard Eastman (AURA), Christian and Anna Fisher (Fisher design + Architecture), Tricia Helyar, and Nick Radford (Ecoliving Design).

The team was also joined by Chris Boaz of the newly formed Pressed Earth Brick Co., who exhibited samples of their pressed earth bricks.
