The Healthy and Sustainable Home

The space provided in the home for everyday living and  storage has an impact on how we behave. Understanding how we live and what  storage spaces are required in the home to support our lives is important in  order to assess if our homes are fit to lead healthy and sustainable  lifestyles.

A sustainable lifestyle requires functional spaces and  arrangements within the home. In a world which is becoming increasingly aware  of its health, the environment and climate change, how can the design of the  home make it easy for people to choose a healthy and sustainable way of living?

The motivation of  individuals is also critical and therefore the importance of long term  behavioural change also needs to be addressed.
