There are plenty of good reasons for why people choose to design and build a sustainable home.
But how can you
find an architect
that will meet the brief and design the perfect sustainable home? What questions must you ask and how much does it cost to get one? At XB Projects we love building homes for our clients’ homes that they will feel satisfied with. You can come with any customisation specifications and we will get it done for you. We have also been in the business for a while now, so we know exactly how to build customised and sustainable homes.
Below we share our thoughts on sustainable home building.
1. Why should you choose a sustainable architect?
Sustainable architects design homes that are comfortable all year round, healthy and use minimal energy. They utilise natural elements like sunlight, air cooling currents and rainwater to make a home more sustainable. Good sustainable architects have strategies that reduce costs and still deliver high quality home designs. To make this easier for you, the consumer, our sustainable architects at XB Projects team up with experienced builders so that you get an all in one service.
2. How is a sustainable architect different from regular ones?
Sustainability is a way of thinking. It starts at the conceptual stage sustainable architects focus on designing energy efficient homes that are comfortable and affordable. The principle of passive solar design and the use of sustainable materials feature heavily in all sustainable home designs. Sustainability must be important to all architects but if your architect looks at you with a blank face when you bring up the topic, give XB Projects a call to find out more information.
3. What key features do sustainable architects focus on?
Sustainable architects design for the site as well as the climate. This involves orienting the house for increased solar efficiency so that there is less need for heating and cooling. A sustainable architect will design a home that you can use both now and in the future. As people grow and families change, their needs also change, and home must be adaptable to these changes. Optimum roofing will be chosen for maximal insulation and a sustainable architect will choose the right glazing for you.
