Sustainable Design in Architecture
is architecture that seeks to minimise the negative environmental impact of buildings by efficiency and moderation in the use of materials, energy, and development space and the ecosystem at large.
Sustainable Design in architecture uses a conscious approach to energy and ecological conservation in the design of the built environment.
The idea of sustainability, or ecological design, is to ensure that our use of presently available resources does not end up having detrimental effects to our collective well-being or making it impossible to obtain resources for other applications in the long run
Sustainability is no longer a luxury; sustainable building design is a necessity. There are many different ways to make a building sustainable. Reducing energy needs and having renewable energy are at the core of sustainable design. Material and psychological sustainability is also important to building design.
A SUSTAINABLE house or greenhouse is a home that is highly energy and water efficient, thermally comfortable, and is constructed with sustainable materials.
