What Is Green Architecture?
Green architecture is growing in popularity as more and more people see and understand the benefits of constructing sustainable, energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly buildings. By using the concepts of green architecture, houses and industrial spaces can be built so that they are not only in harmony with their surroundings, but can save money on heating, lighting and water bills.
From solar panels on the roof and small scale wind turbines, to recycling grey water (waste water from showers, baths and wash hand basins) and rainwater harvesting, there are a wide variety of ways in which buildings and homes can become green.
Constructing a green building from scratch allows your architect to use thermal mass in the construction materials, add water recycling systems that reduce water usage and utilise locally sourced materials, thereby reducing transportation costs. At Block Architects, our full communication policy means that we are able to listen to our clients wants and needs, and translate them into well designed, environmentally friendly, energy efficient buildings that are in complete harmony with their locations.
We have no doubt that green architecture is the future, and we look forward to helping you turn your vision of living in harmony with our planet into a reality.
