In addition to major projects, such as Queensland’s Gallery of Modern Art, they were also recognised for designing low-impact, sustainable homes decades before it became compulsory.The couple’s interest in sustainability dates back to their training with Gabriel Poole, who won the Australian Institute of Architects Gold Medal in 1998. He taught them to always look for passive solutions to heat and ventilate buildings.
