Sustainable Design

Sustainable design seeks to lower the negative impacts that materials have on the environment and ecosystem. It in fact, increases the comfort of the inhabitants and improves building performance.  

Eagleyew house 

Eagleyew house and eagle nest sanctuary is a beautifully sculpted custom green home built with nearly 100 natural materials. The light clay walls are made with a mixture of clay and straw.

The promise of this house from the very beginning is that it’s a house that will last 300 years. It uses natural materials like clay and wood which when well taken care of will last for centuries. All the walls are one foot deep and are made of light clay which has many advantages amongst others absorbs and lets go both of humidity and heat. It keeps it at a very even temperature and it inhibits mold growth and it inhibits burning so it would be difficult to burn this house.

Techniques like permaculture farming and ags heating systems are used here. Permaculture can be understood as the growth of agricultural ecosystems in a self-sufficient and sustainable way. This form of agriculture draws inspiration from nature to develop synergetic farming systems based on crop diversity, resilience, natural productivity, and sustainability.

Right now the framing is around creating a sustainable, regenerative, and circular economy, whereby the things we create to meet our needs are designed to fit with the systems of the planet. Central to this success is the design of goods and services and that’s where these strategies and designers’ creativity fit in.
