OverviewThe architectural practice of Emilis Prelgauskas is based at Monarto, South Australia.
Monarto is situated about 60km east of the South Australian capital Adelaide, on the Mallee plains beyond the abutting Mount Lofty Range of hills. This area is characterised by its desert nature including sandy and high salinity soils with low fertility, arid lands vegetation, low rainfall accentuated by the 'rainshadow' effect of the nearby hills on the watershed.
This architectural practice thus emphasises lifestyle and technologies offering self sufficiency and low environmental impact both in the flat land desert and undulating hills areas which are the practice's service area.The subordinate pages Contents of this Home Page folio offer information on both the philosophical and technological options being used in these projects by this practice.
