Sustainable Design Architecture and The Current
Home Design Trends

  • We cant completely save our earth from the
    detrimental effects of the constantly changing
    environment but we can find ways to at least
    minimize its impact. And one best way to do this
    is to choose sustainable design architecture.
    Green homes or sustainable homes are designed
    using construction practices and processes that
    are both resource-efficient and environmentally
    responsible.

The continuous development and growth of
communities around the world have a really great
impact on the current and future state of the
natural environment.

  • The things that we consume every day, as well as
    the materials that we use in designing, building,
    and operating our homes, all come from different
    natural resources. Choosing a sustainable design
    architecture will not only help you cut down on
    your daily operating expenses

like energy, cooling and heating system, and
water, you can as well help our natural resources
from getting quickly scarce.

What is green architecture or sustainable
architecture?
  • Green architecture, also commonly referred to as
    green design or sustainable architecture, is one
    of the best approach used by architects to design
    and build a home or structure that does not only
    look visually appealing but also help minimize
    the detrimental effects of constructing buildings
    on the health of both the environment and human.
    By applying eco-friendly construction practices
    and using sustainable building materials, green
    designers and architects can be able to safeguard
    earth, air, and water.
  • When we talk about green architecture, we are
    also referring to two of the most popular home
    design trends today, the adaptive home designs
    and earth-friendly home designs.

5
Basic concepts of adaptive home designs
  • With adaptive home designs, we will be dealing
    with two major things. First is our house
    designs ability to adapt to your changing
    lifestyle. Second is our house designs ability
    not just to adapt but also to withstand
    environmental changes.

6
Basic concepts of earth-friendly home designs
  • The adaptive home design also revolves around the
    sustainable living concept. This type of design
    is specifically intended to make the house safer
    to live in and to make it last for decades. It
    usually includes features like dome-shaped
    ceilings, insulated panels, concrete, maximized
    or efficiently used space, and sturdy lumber.

7
  • When we talk about earth-friendly home design, we
    are basically referring to the type of materials
    we use in building or renovating our houses. An
    earth-friendly home is typically constructed with
    the use of more cost-effective and
    environment-friendly materials.

8
Most of the earth-friendly homes are designed
with the intention of using natural air and light
instead of just relying solely on electricity.
Aside from mild steel and natural materials like
responsibly harvested lumber, many architects are
now using biodegradable materials when designing
house interiors. The paint used for this type of
design is also eco-friendly which make it
healthier and safer both for the environment and
its occupants.
