About this title

Synopsis:

Essential reading for anyone planning to design an eco-home
 
Designing an eco-house is as much about working with your natural surroundings as it is about planning to use the right materials for your building. In this book, Christopher Day draws on his extensive experience to explain the key principles of ecological house design. Beautifully illustrated, it highlights how aesthetics arise from eco-responsible design: they are not add-ons, nor are ecology and art in conflict. This book will give you essential guidance in working with your surroundings, understanding what you can do yourself, choosing your materials, making sure your eco home suits your needs, eco-building without relying on technology, and refitting an existing building. This book is essential for anyone who wants to create a beautiful home that is in harmony with its location, is a healthy and pleasant place to live, and is environmentally friendly.

About the Author:

Christopher Day has studied architecture and sculpture and has been committed to eco-architecture and an ecological lifestyle since the 1970s. He has received four design awards, including a Prince of Wales Award, for his work on eco-houses and Steiner schools. He is the author of Consensus Design, Dying: Or Learning to Live?, Environment and Children, Places of the Soul, and Spirit and Place.
