DESIGNED WITH THE ENVIRONMENT IN MIND
Somerfield is committed to the highest standards when it comes to design, planning and the environment. That’s why we’re proud to have been accredited as an EnviroDevelopment by the Urban Development Institute of Australia in three categories.
Our house designs work in harmony with the unique environmental heritage of the area, and are built to have a strong connection between indoor and outdoor areas.
Somerfield’s many public spaces and parkland features extensive native plants, set amidst intelligent and beautiful landscaping throughout. It all works together to ensure Somerfield is environmentally and ecologically sustainable to live in, and a beautiful, healthy place to come home to.
