With environmental concerns constantly at the top of political agendas, the demand for sustainable housing has never been higher. As a society we are becoming progressively more active with our environmental actions, contributing more time and energy to recycling and implementing environmentally friendly forms of energy production. One area that is constantly environmentally aware is architecture. Using sustainable, renewable and verified building materials is a way in which architecture strives to strike a balance between construction and nature.
Conserving The Environment
The installation of an environmentally friendly workplace, such as an office at home or an eco friendly classroom, can help to reduce damage to the surrounding habitat. For example, if an office can be installed in a garden at a worker’s residence, then work can be completed at home without the need for a commute. Driving to and from work every day contributes to your carbon footprint, as well as costing money. Public transport benefits the environment more than individual transport, but it can result in a less productive day as time is consumed by the commute.
Help The Future
The next generation can make the most of eco buildings too. Classrooms, art studios and music blocks can be made for schools out of sustainable cedar and a roof covered in plants. As well as helping the environment it also provides a stimulating area for children to learn in, helping them to achieve their potential.
Safeguard the future and compliment ethics and manifestos with environmentally sustainable architecture.
