Green Architecture, Jaffrey, NH
An approach to architecture that minimizes its effects on the environment.
Green architecture is a form of building that reduces the harmful effects new construction projects can have on the environment, as well as on human health. When you work with a “green” architect, they will attempt to protect water, air, and earth by selecting eco-friendly construction practices and building materials during the design phase.
The ultimate purpose of any green architecture building is to create plans that are fully sustainable. Although most green buildings are not fully sustainable at present, many of these homes and buildings include features such as the following:
- A ventilation system that allows for efficient cooling and heating
- The implementation of plumbing fixtures that allow for water saving
- Energy-efficient appliances and lighting throughout the home
- Landscaping design that features native vegetation
- Alternative energy power sources, like wind power or solar power
- The efficient use of space
