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.
