NVS: Sustainable Buildings

“Far too many buildings, institutional buildings and residential buildings, go up looking boring and tedious and they could be anywhere, they have no sense of the place where they were built”

Is there any reason why you wouldn’t want your house to be built without using sustainable practices? Thinking long term the places tend to pay for themselves.

How a new way of thinking about the buildings we live in will help solve issues of sustainability by reducing carbon emissions so you can become carbon neutral. This is about making buildings ‘nutritious’ for mind, health and ecology.
