My name is Simone Schenkel and I’m the designer and owner at Gruen Eco Design. Thanks to my architectural studies in Germany, an essential part of my education was based on sustainability as well as passive house design.

Being a dynamic and ambitious architect I have experience in various residential projects in Europe and in Australia. Since graduating from the practice-oriented University of Applied Science in Germany I have worked in several well-known architecture companies and since 2007 I am working in Australia with a focus on the residential sector.
