New Green Homes presents the latest innovations in sustainable architecture and design. Projects include "green" houses, apartments, lofts, and cabins, and explore various aspects of environmentally-friendly design from its ecological and economical benefits to the factors that need to be considered when choosing materials, such as the amount of energy that went into manufacturing the product; its sustainability; the life-expectancy of its materials; and the question of if the materials used can be recycled or safely disposed of if they break down over time.

Specific topics covered include climate regulation, drainage systems, and regional planning. Each project contains photographs, floor and aerial plans, as well as detailed drawings that illustrate certain sustainable features revealing how much the parameters of ecological design have expanded in just a few short years.

For the environmentally and aesthetically conscious, New Green Homes is as poignant as it is refreshing. It′s the perfect resource for homeowners, designers, architects, and all clients interested in creating warm and inviting homes that cause only a fraction of the environmental impact of those created using conventional building methods.
