Sydney Open is an initiative run by Sydney Living Museums as a way for the public to experience some of Sydney's great architecture that would otherwise sit behind private doors. In 2019, Clinton led tours through his home, Welcome to the Jungle House, which was a great opportunity to experience the home and all of its considered design. In 2020, Sydney Open is being hosted digitally through a series of live talks, video tours, self guided audio tours and more. Click the image above to learn more.
An impressive Spring haul from the rooftop veggie garden of Welcome to the Jungle House! Cabbage, lettuce, broccoli, beans and strawberries were part of the latest harvest from the thriving veggie patch, with only more to come. Pictured above is Nina Cole, seven year old daughter of Clinton and Hannelore who loves the experience of growing food at home.
ZZ Top House
Now settled into their new home the clients from ZZ Top House have been able to celebrate in style, hosting some friends for dinner and making use of the courtyard firepit. According to the clients, "The house worked beautifully!"
The solar panel system at ZZ Top House continues to kick goals, recently achieving its best day so far. With clear sunny skies and the days becoming longer as we head towards summer, the system recently had a day of near perfect efficiency, producing 62kWh, enough to power the average home in Sydney for nearly 3 days.

Back to the Drawing Board
Project Architect Carmen recently shocked Clinton by opting to use the drawing board in preference over the computer. Clinton thinks this is "the first time in 20 years a CplusC staff member used my drafting board instead of their computer." We think he might be exaggerating!
