Griff Morris built his first passive solar home in Victoria in the mid-seventies. On his arrival to Perth in 1985, there was little interest in the passive solar market, so Griff started a building and maintenance company. In 1991, Griff made a commitment to focus on passive solar, energy-efficient design and to make it accessible to everyone. In 1992 he designed and built his first passive solar house for a client. The house was recognised in the Choice book “Warm House, Cool House” as one of the best passive solar homes in Australia.Solar Dwellings has gone on to design and build over 800 homes in conjunction with selected builders, developing a relationship to continue the ethos of making passive solar design accessible to a large general public. Griff sits on the HIA environmental planning committee, helped to develop the HIA GreenSmart professional program in WA , and was the main trainer for over 18 years. Griff has continued to work tirelessly to change awareness and to bring his knowledge of passive solar design principles to industry and the general public.
