Designing and building sustainable housing

Green living has become a necessity, and designing and building sustainable housing a key responsibility for architects.

"If you spend your money on really good windows, double insulation and quality building materials, then you are going to get low energy bills. If you spend your money on 'bling' interiors, you can expect to pay more for your bills. You need to spend wisely to ensure low running costs." Dr Susan Roaf who has created her own Ecohouse.
