The Minimalist

Upmarket yet affordable, the Minimalist is underpinned by our thermally efficient steel-foam panel construction and equipped with our passive thermal technology. While substantially more efficient than conventional homes, you’ll still need to be grid-connected and will receive regular power bills.

The Eco

Say goodbye to electricity bills, blackouts and a reliance on unclean fossil fuels. The option for true eco-warriors, it’s equipped with solar PV and thermal energy storage so you’ll barely draw any energy from the grid. You can even sell electricity back in, or take it off-grid entirely. Boasting the perfect balance of comfort and sustainability, the Eco includes passive design elements to improve energy consumption and temperature control, thermally efficient composite steel-foam panels, and hydronics for solar thermal heating, cooling, and water storage.


The clear choice for those who’d like to balance their taste for the finer things in life with sustainable living. Equipped with our solar thermal technology, this option also comes with deluxe fixtures, fittings and finishes running throughout the home, in addition to luxury kitchen and bathroom appliances, and more.


Developing a commercial project powered by renewable energy presents a unique variety of challenges, especially for large-scale commercial and industrial properties.

At Fluid Solar, we’re at the forefront of sustainable commercial development, having recently completed the world’s first off-grid, solar-thermal powered four storey office building – Fluid Solar House – in Elizabeth Vale, South Australia. With our knowledge of solar thermal systems, combined with our experienced team of builders and architects, we’re well placed to work with you on your green energy-powered commercial building, from project inception to completion.

Our building and energy technology is ideally suited for small to medium density residential projects; tourism operators, healthcare providers; educational institutions; government; NGOs, and more.

Our prefab homes are ideal for small to medium density multi-residential developments, and can be customised to suit your budget. We just recently completed a suite of cabins for a Caravan Park in Gawler, South Australia, and are currently working on a

Design and Supply

Our complete custom design and supply solution provides solar-thermal technology for energy optimised commercial and industrial properties.

Building Envelope Design

We’ll design all aspects of the solar-thermal system from the energy monitoring receptors to the thermal banks and collectors arrays. Passive design features, as well as glazing design, are optimised and outlined.

Energy Systems

Our Solar thermal powered HVAC systems can be incorporated into building design for your commercial or industrial property.


We can work with you on retrofitting your commercial or industrial property with a custom solar-thermal energy solution to significantly reduce electricity consumption.
