New Eco Homes presents the latest innovations in sustainable architecture and environmentally-minded design. After an introductory interview with an international specialist in green building, the book features 35 homes. It explores various aspects of eco design, from its environmental and economical benefits, to factors considered when choosing materials: how much energy went into manufacturing the product, whether it is long lasting, and whether it can be recycled or safely disposed of as it breaks down over time. Specific topics covered include climate regulation, drainage systems, and regional planning. Each project contains photographs, floor plans and detailed drawings that illustrate certain sustainable features, revealing how much the parameters of ecological design have expanded in just a few short years.
For the environmentally and aesthetically conscious, New Eco Homes is as poignant as it is refreshing. It's the perfect resource for homeowners, designers, architects, and clients interested in creating warm and inviting living spaces that cause only a fraction of the environmental impact of those created using conventional building methods.
In keeping with environmentally conscious theme of the book, the book itself will be printed on wood free paper and bound in recycled cardboard.
