Thoughtful, Environmentally Sustainable Home Building
Most homes built in the United States in the past fifty years were essentially plopped down, without much mind paid to the integration of house and site. The result is a largely uninspiring and unsustainable urban sprawl. My next guest says there is an alternative and he’s written a book chock full of examples to prove it. Jeremiah Eck is the author of House in the Landscape: Siting Your Home Naturally and he is also a senior partner at Eck MacNeely Architects in Boston, which specializes in residential and institutional design.
