SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

Sustainable design these days is a lot of different things to a lot of different people. To us it is essentially two things:

  1. investing now to save later and;
  2. creating spaces that can achieve an ideal level of comfort with minimum energy use.

Investing now to save later is for those who are building their own home. Technology is available to have a house with very little ongoing energy costs.

At Architettura we help you find the right balance between what is possible and what is affordable. We keep up to date with the latest available technologies to design the most affordable green homes.

Creating spaces that can deliver comfort with the least use of energy is the art of maximizing the site, and its orientation as well as designing a plan that will naturally heat the building in winter and appropriately ventilate it in the summer.
