Why build a healthy home?
Building a new home offers many opportunities to custom-design a space to suit your family’s needs. But one important area is often overlooked in the planning process – building a home that actively supports your family’s health. Healthy home design will not only look after your family but can save you money, as well.
There are plenty of positive steps you can take when building your new home and, as an informed homeowner, you can make positive choices about the materials used in construction as well as the design and features of the home that will contribute to your family’s health for the lifespan of the home.
Owners Lucas and Danny are committed to understanding building biology – an emerging area of science that looks at how building design and construction affects both long and short term health.
Natura Homes is a specialist in building dwellings in Canberra and the A.C.T. that are healthy spaces.

The Natura difference
Natura Homes is headed by the young and dynamic team of Lucas and Danny with the aim to offer Canberra’s residents a building company that does things differently. Danny’s experience in the building industry coupled with Lucas’ background in sustainable energies means Natura Homes designs homes that are quality-built with a focus on eco-sustainability and healthy home principles.
Lucas and Danny oversee every project they undertake – meaning you benefit from personalised service and attention to detail. Natura Homes has built a core group of tradespeople who subscribe to the same focus on quality and customer service. In addition, Lucas and Danny have developed a timeline management system that keeps your building project on time and on track.
Natura Homes provides fixed-price quotes so there are no nasty surprises with sneaky variations or hidden extras. Your dream home is their priority so you’ll be an integral part of the process at every stage of the project. Client communication is a priority and Danny and Lucas will keep you informed as the project progresses and are always available to take your call if needed.
The team at Natura Homes understands that a house is so much more than simply a dwelling – it’s your home, where you and your family should feel happy, relaxed and well. For this reason, Lucas and Danny have placed a huge focus on the health of the home across a variety of aspects – from the building materials used in the construction to investigating the use of the land prior to your home being built. They also look at the design and layout of the home, from the fittings and fixtures chosen to airflow, water recycling, grey water use, rainwater harvesting and so much more.
Natura Homes builds homes for Canberrans who appreciate quality and service. Every home is custom designed to suit your needs with inclusions and fittings that match your family’s lifestyle. Lucas and Danny bring an innovative approach to the building industry with their focus on you – the client.
