Sustainable house designs
Ecospace can provide sustainable house designs which are, quite simply, homes designed by professional residential architects, primarily made from renewable materials such as sustainable wood. Developed from a prototype of modular buildings back in 2002, our sustainable house designs have extended to a wide range of projects and uses which will not only fulfill your home requirements, but also respect the environment they are built in.
Sustainable building design with Ecospace means that your home can maximise efficiencies of energy through several methods, such multi-layered flooring and walls, low-energy under-floor heating, air to air source heating and optional sedum planted roofs for living green roofs.
Why create a sustainable building design?
Ecospace sustainable house designs are a wonderful way to build a home away from home. Garden studios, for instance, can provide affordable extension to your living arrangements that are in tune with the surrounding environment. All buildings are constructed from sustainable cedar wood and, due to their sustainable building design, are energy efficient and cost-effective.
With our sustainable house designs, Ecospace have created modular buildings that require miminal upkeep. You can even incorporate additional options into your sustainable building design, which will add to your renewable energy credentials, with extras such as photovoltaic cells, air to air source heating and log burning stoves.
How to develop your sustainable house designs
Our approach at Ecospace is to ensure we deliver your design at a fixed cost and with a short delivery period, to ensure that your dream home is closer than you think. Following an initial chat about what you require from your home design, and a meeting with one of our architects who will make a site visit to assess the location and discuss your requirements. Following your design instruction, the next step is for Ecospace to submit a proposal to you, reflecting all discussed items as requested by you. If you are happy with our proposal, you can place an order and, if needed, we can take care of any planning applications that are required. Following planning approval then the technical design is carried out to confirm the project cost and instruction to manufacture. The building will be delivered in sections and your home can be erected within a few weeks. That is when the fun will begin, leaving you free to enjoy your new home.
