Sustainable architecture is gaining in popularity as people develop an ever-greater commitment to preserving the Earth's resources. This practical new guide contains an illustrated reference section covering all aspects of sustainable building and decoration, from insulation to solar panels and from light bulbs to kitchen countertops. Thirty case studies, featuring sustainably built homes from around the world, from an ambassador's official residence to a rooftop extension, offer inspiration. The informative text takes a balanced and realistic view of the techniques employed and explains the decisions made in the construction of each building. Generously illustrated with photographs and plans,The Sustainable Home will appeal as much to anyone designing an entirely new eco house as to those seeking to spruce up or extend their own home.
