Nev House takes the waste that we throw away and turns it into affordable shelter.  

Our low cost homes, school classrooms, medical clinics and other structures are made from recycled materials. These places of  sanctuary can be built in just 5 days and are functional either on or off the power grid.

 
 
 
 
 

Each structure comes with solutions for light, clean water and sanitation. 

We can build communities faster than the conventional 'bricks and mortar' approach using our holistic and sustainable community development model.

Nev House sustainable development in Vanuatu post Cyclone Pam

Channel 9’s Emma O’Rourke reports on an initiative by Nev House to deliver hope and homes to people on remote Tanna Island, in Vanuatu.  In an interview, the Australian Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop stated “the people of Vanuatu have been through a very devastating experience”. Founder Nev Hyman explains how Nev House is taking plastic out of the environment and using it to create panels for the homes.


RECENT AWARDS ...

Nev House wins two awards at the Australian Good Design Awards in 2016 taking out top honours in both the Sustainability and Architecture categories

RECENT ACTIVITY...

Papua New Guinea. The Nev House team has spent considerable time in Papua New Guinea securing acceptance from government ministers, departments, land owner groups and clan leaders. Our standard preliminary research and assessment stages were commenced which lead to tailor made homes being engineered and designed and then built and tested in Australia. All of the moving parts required to mobilize the Nev House solution in Papua New Guinea has been setup. The video below that shows the amazing foundation laid by Nev House using our grass roots approach on the Island of Lihir where our solution has been accepted by the local community and our team have been welcomed as family.

 
 

Vanuatu. Nev House visited Vanuatu the same month Cyclone Pam swept through devastating the entire nation and met with the Prime Minister, Finance Minister, Housing Minister, Education Minister, Chief Architect and other dignitaries. Social research was undertaken immediately to assess the solution required to re-build homes, schools and medical clinics throughout the nation. Following presentations to the Prime Minister and various Cabinet Ministers Nev House received a mandate to supply homes, primary schools, secondary schools and medical clinics as part of a national re-build program. At present Nevhouse is re-building a community on Tanna Island which was completely wiped out by Cyclone Pam starting with the building of a number of category 5 cyclone rated community houses. The video below shows another project on Mataso Island which Nev House is preparing to re-build.
