Environmental design is not a new idea to Lindsay + Kerry Clare. Here are just some achievements in making great living and working environments:

2023 Sustainability and Health, School of Architecture, University of Tasmania, Launceston, Tasmania
2019 ‘Construccion Bioclimatica en Madera’ Santiago – joint design and construction workshop Universidad Catolica de Chile
2015 2015 AIA National Award for Sustainable Architecture, Library at The Dock (Clare Design with Hayball)
2015 AIA Victoria State Award, Allan + Beth Coldicutt Award for Sustainable Architecture, Library at The Dock (Clare Design with Hayball)
2013 Keynote Speaker, Sustainable Design + Building Encounter, Mexico City.
2010 RAIA Gold Medal “Lindsay and Kerry Clare have made an enormous contribution to the advancement of architecture and particularly sustainable architecture, with a strongly held belief that good design and sustainable design are intrinsically linked”.
2010 UDIA Sustainable Development Award for UNSW Student Housing Project.
2010 Keynote Speaker, Rethinking Sustainability, Commonwealth Association of Architects, Sri Lanka.
2010 Office Fitout case study City of Sydney CitySwitch Green Office website.
2009 USC Chancellery case study published in the Journal of Green Building concluded that The Chancellery Building demonstrates that traditional climate responsive strategies such as natural ventilation and the use of daylighting can provide sustainable and sophisticated outcomes. In particular mixed mode ventilation may provide an ongoing model for university buildings that typically consist of large numbers of small teaching spaces and offices. This can reduce carbon emissions and reduce operational costs whilst improving learning outcomes and providing enjoyable spaces to be in.
2009 Wesley House Ann Street Brisbane (Architectus) 5,500m² commercial building for Wesley Mission designed to be 5-star Green Star with the inclusion of chilled beam air cooling, optimal day lighting, low emissions materials, quality planning and best practice construction.
2008 AIA Queensland State Award Harry S Marks Award for environmental design for the USC Chancellery (Architectus), a 4000 m² building based on passive design principles, 14 classrooms, 50 offices and a 250 seat lecture theatre incorporate mixed mode offering a choice of natural ventilation with supplementary air conditioning for peak conditions.
2008 Keynote Speaker Green Building and Design-Environmental Strategies, Sydney. Keynote Speaker, Green is the New Black, Noosa.
2000 Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland (Architectus) – This project was won in international competition from over 170 entries and completed in 2006. The environmental conditions and requirements for a contemporary art gallery have been rigorously investigated and implemented in the GoMA project. Issues addressed include temperature and humidity, thermal comfort and internal conditions, artificial and natural lighting, air pollution and pests, salt, indoor air [pollutants, pollutant from appliances, energy, building services, lighting design, water cycle and waste water, building materials, indoor environmental quality, waste management, transport, shading ,embodied energy, insulation and air distribution.
2000 Climate Responsive Design: A Study of Buildings in Moderate and Humid Climates Dr Richard Hyde featured the Clare Residence as a key study in his publication.
2000 Ten Shades of Green Exhibition – The Cotton Tree pilot housing project was included in this exhibition along with nine others chosen world wide to demonstrate environmental sensitivity with architectural excellence, The exhibition has been travelling since 2000 from New York to Austin, Washington, Houston, Denver, Portland, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Orange County, Boston, Las Vegas, St Louis, Louisville, and Maine, and featured Peter Buchanan’s book with the foreword by Kenneth Frampton, published by the Architectural League of New York.
2000 Keynote Speaker, Ten Shades of Green, The Architectural League, New York.
2000 No 1 Fire Brigade, Castlereagh St Sydney – Extensions to the 1887 heritage Fire Station required a new building design to operate effectively with natural light and ventilation in an inner city location. A glazed double skin front façade was devised acting as 4 separate chimneys that drew air in and distributed it through the interior spaces.
2000 Expert Evidence Sick Building Syndrome, Lindsay + Kerry Clare were called to provide expert evidence to the NSW Government Standing Committee on Public Works with regard to the relationship of environmental design and the avoidance of Sick Building Syndrome.
2000 Keynote Speaker, APEC Conference, Green Buildings, Taipei. 1999 National Environment Centre, a unique school for TAFE courses in environmental sciences and sustainable agriculture. The building incorporates many ESD initiatives including ground source heating and cooling, rammed earth walls, evaporating cooling effects of ponds and misting systems in the landscape, optimized cross ventilation, natural daylighting, recycling, embodied energy, thermal mass and waste management.
1998 Greenhouse Neutral Conference Centre – As Design Directors for the NSW Government Architect Lindsay and Kerry Clare were commissioned to produce a design to test the feasibility of constructing and operating a greenhouse neutral conference centre in the Cumberland State Forest.  The study substantiated that construction and operation would be greenhouse neutral over a period of 20 years.
1996 RAIA National Environment Award for the Cotton Tree pilot housing project.
1996 University of Queensland Case Study Cotton Tree pilot housing project, a measured case study undertaken by Dr Richard Hyde demonstrated the effectiveness of the design in both summer and winter conditions and the urban design/landscape response effectively reduced the heat island effect.
1995 Sunshine Coast Environment Council Award Lindsay Clare received the Environment Award from the Sunshine Coast Environment Council for his contribution to the built environment of the Sunshine Coast region.
1995 Hammond Residence Robin Boyd Award, described as an ‘eco cottage’ by Michael Keniger in Architecture Australia, this residence achieves a high degree of self sufficiency with passive solar design, solar power, water collection,  waste management, and effective use of resources.
1994 Keynote Speaker, Architecture + the Environment, Los Angeles.
1992 University of Queensland Case Study Clare Residence (Robin Boyd Award 1992), measured study undertaken by Dr Richard Hyde demonstrating the effectiveness of the design in both summer and winter conditions to create comfort and the use of light weight construction.
