The Ecovillage at Currumbin, Gold Coast is the world's pre-eminent, multi-award-winning residential eco-development (www.theecovillage.com.au).

The 'Living Laboratory' at 21 Village Way is the signature  residence of the estate, designed with passive climatic comfort, total energy and water self sufficiency and  constructed of 70 per cent recycled content, non toxic, non-allergenic building materials and applied finishes.

The selection of building materials complement the aspiration of the owners to commit to a Zero Carbon Home.

INEX>BOARDS were selected as multi functional, ecologically appropriate, innovative building material science being of 30 per cent recycled content and low carbon footprint manufacture.

The INEX>BOARDS were easily handled, cut, installed and finished in zero VOC paints and natural clay renders.

The INEX>BOARDS range  of building products are ideally suited to lightweight, light impact construction technique and exhibit a solid 'masonry feel' with superior finishing while the material 'breathes' contributing to a healthy indoor air quality for human wellbeing.

The Living Laboratory is a triumph of imagination, innovation, aesthetic appeal and practical efficiency.

Accordingly, the Living Laboratory was named HIA Greensmart House of the Year in 2008.
