Book: New Natural Home

Book: New Natural Home

A useful research companion for anybody looking to build green, as much as a lovely selection of great new houses all over the globe, the New Natural Home is one of Thames & Hudson’s latest publications, hitting the stores this March.
Written by frequent Wallpaper* contributor Dominic Bradbury and with beautiful imagery courtesy of photographer Richard Powers, this book looks at ways to help us weave ecology in every residential build and eventually, our everyday lives.
Neatly organised in five chapters that take you through the key decisions one needs to make when designing with ecology in mind – from advice for the design and building phases, to lighting issues, material options, the connection to the outdoors and specific sustainable solutions – the publication is a great handbook for combining practical with creative thinking in an environmentally friendly context.
The international selection ranges from hot-weather country houses like BR House in Rio de Janeiro by Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan to new builds in colder environs such as the Rauch House in Austria by a team of Martin Rauch and Roger Boltshauer; the featured Marie Short House by Australian iconic architect Glenn Murcutt is certainly one of our favourites.
Good design should also be eco-friendly and the New Natural Home certainly argues for that approach; not forgetting that there is plenty of space within ‘sensible’, for ‘stylish’.
