company profile

ehabitat was the outcome of a two year collaboration between industrial designer Pete Reid and graduate architect Giles Newstead. The brief was to design a truly modular, environmentally friendly and low cost housing solution. It was conceived on the pristine Flinders Island and tested in the harsh Roaring Forties environment.

ehabitat was officially released by Giles Newstead in November 2005 following extensive research and the completion of two prototypes. These first two ehabitats are now being lived in and enjoyed by satisfied ehabitat customers.

ehabitat successfully built 17 ehabitats across Victoria and Tasmania.
Although the patented ehabitat product is no longer available, Giles is able to incorporate principles learnt from ehabitat in a tailored building design.
