AQUILA RETREAT'S ECO ETHOS
Built in 2001 this extraordinary home was designed by an Indian architect to align with the sun, the moon and the stars, on a site that was chosen by a Geomancer for its ‘spirit of place’ and its ‘environmental equilibrium’. The name Aquila is Latin for ‘Eagle’ and this name was chosen as the home has been specifically aligned with the Aquila star constellation.
Constructed primarily from timber in a circular formation so as to contain and circulate the homes abundant spiritual and environmental energy, Aquila Retreat was the first property in Queensland to be awarded five green stars for its eco-friendly construction and its then outstanding environmental initiatives.
Renovated by its new owner in 2019, Heidi has made a passionate stand to continue with the use of low VOC paints and eco materials. Heidi invites and encourages all guests to regard and to support Aquila’s environmental ethos too.
