Welcome to The Green Point Project!

 

A Passive House, Living Building Challenge and Green Shores for Homes project.

 

Inspired by the natural beauty and history of the land, The Green Point Project is a highly sustainable, site regenerative, affordable design of a 2,500 s.f. residence that produces all of its energy on site and is constructed of non-toxic, natural and salvaged materials. This architectural project is a biophilic exploration and a living laboratory. It aims to create a sustainable place that promotes healthy living and wellness. The project explores constructing a living building that connects and rejuvenates it’s natural environment and respects the rich history and unique archeology of the region. We invite you to follow our project.

Our Concept: “Re-Wilding the Ecosystem” by constructing a Living Building that regenerates the environment.

 .

 

Rejuvenate the ecosystem; build in an affordable and sustainable way; dwell in a healthy, living building and preserve our unique history.

 

Here at The Green Point Project, we are driven by a single goal; to be as sustainable as possible! We aim to create a highly sustainable residence that rejuvenates the ecosystem; that is in harmony with nature and generates all its' energy from the site.
Co-Founded by Fiona McLagan and Kenneth Chooi, our vision is shared by our family and supported by a dedicated team of passionate professionals, colleagues and friends.
Designing the Green Point Project is all about making a place that addresses sustainability, affordability and wellness through a connection with nature by an integrated design process. Our passion for exploring biophilic design, re-using salvaged materials. designing for zero energy use and a shared desire to be part of something transformational. Mostly, we hope this project will inspired others to build and live in a more sustainable way.

 

“What is the use of a house if you haven't got a tolerable planet to put it on?”

Henry David Thoreau,

 

 

A sustainable home.

 

After living in an urban environment for over 20 years, we decided as a family to relocate and live close to nature.  Upon moving from Vancouver, British Columbia to Vancouver Island, a chance visit to a historic and beautiful ecosystem in Cowichan Bay, inspired us to make this a live-work place that would eventually become The Green Point Project. This Project emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and make a transformational change in how we build and live in a more sustainable way, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words.
