Current modes of residential design are facing challenges of both philosophy and form. Approaches that have prevailed in past decades no longer sustain new demands and require innovative rethinking. The need for a new outlook is propelled by fundamental changes to the environment, economy and society.
Design for passive solar gain, solar-powered homes, minimising a dwelling's physical footprint, Net-Zero residences and preserving a site's natural assets are some of the strategies that the architects and builders featured in this book are integrating into their thought processes and design practices.
An important book written by a world expert in the field, Inspired Homes offers information on contemporary sustainable design concepts and illustrates them with examples of truly outstanding design.
