The Sustainability Report: Tone Wheeler

Tone Wheeler one of Australia’s foremost environmental designers of houses and has had a leading role in shaping the future of his profession, through a number of professional bodies, including the Australian Institute of Architects and as a lecturer.

In his day job at Environa Studio, which he runs with wife and fellow architect Jan O’Connor, Wheeler is trying to do no less than reinvent the way we do housing and the way we think about housing.

Emine Mehmet spoke to Tone Wheeler about BlueScope Steel’s photovoltaic panels which have been mounted to his roof as part of the testing phase for BlueScope’s new solar panels, his passion for the environment and Australian sustainable technology.
