Eugenie Stockmann – Founder
Eugenie is passionate about creating & facilitating more sustainable communities. As a sustainability expert, in addition to the sustainability of the buildings, she focuses on the social fabric of a project. She understands that it is the connections between future residents that will ultimately help facilitate more sustainable lifestyles and build authentic neighbourhoods.
Eugenie co-founded The Green Swing, an initiative by two couples to build sustainable urban infill projects. The Green Swing completed two, now multi-award winning projects: Genesis and The Siding, both located in the suburb of Lathlain (Perth, WA). Eugenie lives with her husband in the group’s first project.
Eugenie has a diverse background in finance, project & office management. She completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Sustainability at Murdoch University, focusing on Sustainable Urban & Regional Planning.
A 500 Communities Affiliate
In 2018, Eugenie was selected as the first and only Australian for this program. 500 Communities is an initiative by Katie McCamant from Cohousing Solutions. Katie was instrumental in bringing cohousing to the US and has successfully assisted dozens of communities in the development of their housing projects.
Through 500 Communities Eugenie has access to state of the art knowledge and experience on the development of cohousing communities.
Housing Co-operative Consortium
Green Fabric was instrumental in bringing together a national consortium of professionals who are working together on the development and delivery of affordable home ownership for people on moderate incomes such as key workers.
The consortium understands the issues of relying on a speculative model of development to deliver affordable, high quality housing in the medium and high density market. It has developed a governance and funding model that enables buyers to access housing effectively at wholesale cost with an estimated saving of 20% – in perpetuity.
