Architecture That Drives Ecological Innovation

Architecture That Drives Ecological Innovation | In the World of Design | Scoop.it

A gallery of the buildings that house the industries working to preserve the planet's natural ecology.

 

We constantly hear about the "green revolution" in building, whether it's performative facades that reduce cooling needs or grey water recycling that cuts down on water usage. However, the drive to reduce our environmental impact isn't just about designing the next LEED Gold skyscraper.

Integral to our collective efforts are a unique set of green institutions and industries, all of which require special architecture to function. These organizations not only leave a light ecological footprint, they also find ways for us to do the same: whether reducing carbon emissions or engineering better seeds that can sustain our growing population. 


It's not just green design; it's design that promotes new ways of being green.

Michaela Jansen's insight:

this is great, i think we all need to step it up and move forward from recycling and substituting materials. "Go big or go home," right?

House D by HHF architekten

House D by HHF architekten | In the World of Design | Scoop.it

Located in Nulgar, Switzerland, House D by HHF Architects has an oriention parallel to the landscape, making the view a matter of prime importance- aross more than 180 degrees, vistas include verdant land with mature fruit trees.


The design accentuates the site with a few simple moves: The main level is an open space – with the kitchen as well as dining and living areas – and alongside a concrete core, the stair to the upper and lower floors. The space is entirely glazed and blends seamlessly with the space outdoors. The outdoor space itself is an oversized terrace overlooking a pool. Because the terrain slopes downward slightly, the wood deck is elevated, which protects the main living space from the curious glances of passers-by.
