Green Modern showcases design-conscious New Zealand houses that embrace a more sustainable way of living. Ranging from inner-city homes to remote retreats, each house demonstrates how thoughtful design and environmentally-responsive building techniques can work together to produce beautiful and ecologically sound living spaces. Part design inspiration, part practical guide, Green Modern offers examples of homes that adopt a wide variety of responses to enhance energy efficiency, environmental impact, health and comfort. They are 'smart', eco-conscious homes that champion style and sustainability in equal measure. Filled with beautiful colour photographs and helpful floor plans, Green Modern is the ideal reference for anyone considering how to build or renovate a home in a more ecologically responsive way.
