Sustainable buildings

The starting point for designing buildings has to be life; we should be mindful how buildings contribute to the sustainability of the community as a whole as well as each household.

A well-designed house is more than a building for sleeping and eating in. It has the potential to house life’s possibilities; so it can respond to change and growth, economic fluctuations as well as the needs of the environment, in times of climate and other change.

A house can be more than a house
