Banksia Place is located within the Blue Mount Rise Estate, conceived in 2003 when it was relatively uncommon to build an energy efficient home (minimum 6-star energy rating) and harvest rainwater to reduce reliance on reticulated water supplies.

Leading Sustainability Architects, Sunpower Design, created the Blue Mount Rise Design Guidelines in 2004 to guide original purchasers of land achieve a beautiful, energy efficient home. The Design Guidelines are based on timeless design principles and remain as relevant today as when they were created.

Today, it is intuitively obvious to most people that designing a home to use less energy and water makes good economic sense as well as being good for the environment.
