Green Designs To Take At Home

Author : monisha anu


The "green design" term might be a relatively new one, but for sure is getting more and more popular among people with "green" tendencies, that are looking not only after themselves and their families, but also after nature. Going green is the right trend to follow and the only one which, guaranteed, won't fall out of fashion in the following decades, as nature needs our help more and more to remain green.

For that matter, nowadays almost all industries and branches are trying to at least reduce their polluting factors if not to recreate the whole system for a sustainable one, which can only lead to better things such as lower pollution in the cities, greener spaces, fresher air, healthier food and so on. When it comes to green and sustainable home designs, it is not necessarily to give up style and design for comfort; there are newer, better ways to provide all facilities and utilities you want without having to make concessions regarding design, shape and even materials. In few words, whatever you want, a green architect will provide it for you!

Fans of modern architecture can find now a balance between green living and aesthetics, whether opting for organic materials like wood and rocks, or even glass-made entire designs, all you need is the right amount of imagination.
If you decided to step away from all civilization and build a new home far away, in de desert, find out that you will not be the first one to do so; thanks to architect Lloyd Russell, living comfortably in a desert environment is now possible, even without air conditioning! He managed to create a structure that is both eco-friendly and modern, which uses passive cooling instead of standard air conditioning. With the help of a rusted metal canopy covering the entire home, he managed to create the impossible – an oasis of calm and coolness in the middle of the desert.

However, if you are still a fan of civilization and want to profit both from comfort and style, you might want to opt for a structure made out of wood, glass and stone, perfectly fitted together. The secret of this type of house is that it is partially built into the earth, which provides year-round temperature control while blending almost like a camouflage with the surrounding landscape. Using modern techniques and designs, the Base Valley House was provided with subterranean bedrooms that are, ironically, full of natural lighting thanks to the glass roof which penetrates deeply into the house.

Another way to integrate green design into your home building is to create a structure that uses the so-called green roof. Highly modern, chic, green and healthy, the animated green roof consists of a roof made out of natural green grass and small plants. The KWK Promes house is covered with a grassy green roof which helps to blend in effortlessly with the surroundings and it also features a floor-to-ceiling glass that provides constant outdoor view and natural lighting. And what could be a better way to start off your day, if not to sip coffee while looking at a deer eating from your ceiling?

Moving even more into the science-fiction modern green structures, find out that you can even live in a spinning dome home. A rotating dome house might seem as taking from UFO magazine pages, but actually spinning on a central axis serves a great purpose. By using the method, the house self-balances for a balanced interior lighting and heat level. Everything inside the house is built around a central pivot point, while the house spins silently using few energy and, most important, without interfering with daily human activities.
