Designing the interior of one of the greenest homes on the planet. What kind of sustainable design aspects are included in the greenest homes in the world? Some strategies deployed in ‘The Confluence’ house include salvaged and reclaimed products, biophilic design, timber framing, local sourcing, waste diversion, product life cycle considerations, indoor air quality, and non-toxic materials. This session will showcase the gorgeous interior spaces and the strategies that align with environmental sustainability, economic practicality, and social responsibility. Instead of following trends, let’s choose durable/sustainable materials, let’s explore the design challenge of incorporating salvaged and reclaimed items, and let’s create a stimulating, cohesive, and distinct home. A take-away sheet will be provided so that you can easily replicate these actions in your practices, and deliver genuinely sustainable approaches to your clients. Join this interactive expert panel to learn the next great interior design challenge: creating beautiful and sustainable places.
